New Doggerland exhibition opens in London

30 JAN | BY VINCE GAFFNEY

New Doggerland is a new artists project for a future imagining of physical and cultural re-connection between Britain and the European mainland and features ceramics made using sediments from Lost Frontier cores by Alison Cooke ( @IamAlisonCooke) .

New Doggerland is a multi-disciplinary visual arts project for a future imagining of physical and cultural re-connection between Britain and the European mainland. Doggerland is the name given to the ancient landmass, now submerged, that once connected Britain to Northern Europe. What if a new land mass rises up and we become physically part of the mainland again?

New Doggerland is a project about future land and humans. It asks questions to which the exhibitors and participants will respond with different ideas and answers. Who will be living there and how? It may evoke a Ballardian dystopia, or ideas of possible Utopia. Or could New Doggerland be the heterotopia where we go to experience ‘other’ selves, a place of becoming?
