Visiting artist in 2010/11, Simon Pope’s practice often involves walking, the act of being together, the spoken word, and the subjective notion of memory. During his time at YSP, Pope researched access in relation to the Bretton Estate, walking and talking with various stakeholders along the many pathways that cross the Park.

More Information

His new film What Cannot Be Turned Aside is an exploration of how we negotiate access to land and the strong impulses at play during this process. The work features a horse and rider from West Bretton walking together across an open field near the former gallops on Longside, which once staged an annual horse fair.

What Cannot Be Turned Aside is funded by Arts Council England and will also be screened at Danielle Arnaud gallery, London from 5-28 October 2012.
