Public Space With A Roof

Victoria Carolan

“My work seeks to explore and rethink the meaning and concept of ‘maritime’, and it is both internalised and externalised as a cultural and aesthetic identity. The emphasis is on Britain and the Netherlands, looking at how the maritime past is ‘re-invented’ and ‘culturalised’ in today’s society, particularly in relation to port development, art, ‘industrial tourism’ and ‘heritage sites.’ Another central element in my work is using and combining different methodologies to approach the subject in particular, contemporary theory, historical research, photography and creative writing.”
