Place and Memory for @LoveArtsLeeds

Place and Memory – 8 Artists, One City shares personal and collective memories, they examine the hidden and overlooked corners of the city, finding beauty in unexpected places. Exploring graveyards, wastelands, woodlands, and a hospital’s echoing corridors, they have created drawings, installations, photographs, video, poetry, sculpture, and sound.
