Altered Landscapes

Producer - Touring multimedia installation by artist Juan delGado

Altered Landscapes is an immersive installation which traces a personal narrative through the scarred vistas of Europe in the midst of the largest mass migration in living memory. delGado travelled to Greece, Macedonia and Calais to record the journeys taken by refugees; he has not filmed these ‘invisible’ people but the places they have passed through and the traces of their existence left on the land as they pass through to find safety. In place of the images proliferated by the media delGado presents fragments of experiences and fleeting moments that tell the human story of people caught in the unfolding sweep of history.

The work is in exhibition at Watermans, London (April to May 2016); The Art House, Wakefield (March to May 2017); New Art Exchange, Nottingham (June to August 2017); and Attenborough Arts Centre, Leicester (January to February 2018). The exhibition has been made accessible for Deaf and Disabled audiences.

Altered Landscapes is supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England. delGado has been awarded an INSIDE commission from New Art Exchange and DASH. INSIDE is a Disability Arts commissioning programme led by DASH with funding from Arts Council England.
