Project Summary

In my current research I investigate intuitive models for cross-pollinating fine art practice so as to encourage an appreciation of local cultural heritage. A key element is to examine methodologies for mapping cultural value of artistic activities to support the research approach and its proposed outcomes.

In September 2013 I exhibited works based on the archaeological remains of Talayots at various sites in Mallorca at the Lluc Fluxà Gallery in Palma de Mallorca. Talayots are protohistoric sites of cultural importance to the island and to the region of the Mediterranean where the island is located. These sites, many abandoned or poorly recognised, are of key historical significance to the development of inhabitants in the island.

The work I produced for an exhibition at Lluc Fluxà Gallery in Mallorca in September 2013 was based on notions of heritage and its transmissions from the past.

For my presentation at the CCCS Conference in September 2014, I will be using my findings on Talayots in Mallorca, Spain and its application in my own practice to expand the notion of cross-pollination. The aim is to make the case for cultural heritage activities that support a stronger sense of place in the local community.
