‘Precarious Landscape’ bus tour

Ian Nesbitt, Ruth Levene, Bob Johnston

Location: Preston’s western bounds
Year: 2017

On a cold, bright morning in December 2017 artists Ruth Levene and Ian Nesbitt took a group of participants on a location tour of the western bounds of Preston, looking to broaden and deepen their own understanding of the city’s edges by seeking the experience of others. Precarious Landscape considered what happens to a landscape when the factors that hold the most sway over its future, such as agriculture, housing development, roadbuilding and hydraulic fracking, are driven by external market forces, and sought to reintroduce other ways of understanding the landscape, which give voice to alternative narratives.
