SelfScapes refers to the relationship between self and its environment. The aim of this research cluster is to investigate both the body and place as sites for interconnected experiences. It is supported by Forestry England and this exhibition has received funding from Arts Council England.

SelfScapes was initiated in 2018 at York St John University by Dr Joanna Sperryn-Jones, Mark Adams, Sally Taylor and Dr Christina Kolaiti. Petra Young, who leads the arts programme for Forestry England at Dalby Forest, gave us the working space and support for the events and enabled us to continue the project. The subject of SelfScapes emerged as a common theme from conversations on our individual art practices. SelfScapes’ focus on the relationship between self and environment seemed like an appropriate starting point for our common interests, which are embodied by an experimental approach to image making and developing ideas. In addition, the form of the event (shared making followed by discussion and an exhibition) is of common interest to us as a means of disseminating and developing artistic research.
