Nick Goss reimagines his home city of London, transforming the cityscape and its interior spaces to explore themes of displacement and natural disaster.
He combines observations of everyday life with impressions of the Netherlands’ 1953 Zeeland flood, as recounted by his maternal grandmother, and JG Ballard’s pioneering work of climate fiction The Drowned World rendering the city uncanny, warped and transformed.
He uses a collage-based approach that layers scavenged imagery drawn from personal memories, contemporary culture and historical events, collapsing time and space.
Accompanies the exhibition ‘Nick Goss: Morley’s Mirror’, 2 Mar – 9 Jun 2019, Pallant House Gallery, Chichester UK.
