Landmarks was a participatory cross-border art project which explored the cultural and social complexities of place. Landmarks evoked the memories, lived experiences and current realities of communities living in evolving post–conflict societies.
Landmarks also sought to engender new international connections through the ICAN residency programme, which connected local experience of the border region to experiences of displacement and conflict in post apartheid South Africa. Working with artist Roderick Sauls from District Six in Cape Town, project participants created work in photography, film and mixed media.
The programme also engaged Dublin-based Vagabond Reviews in an initial research phase as part of a related arts training workshops for participants. Paola Bernardelli, (Photographer) facilitated the Derry-Londonderry element of the overall project work. These workshops employed a range of media and documentary strategies including oral testimonies, photography, archival research and participation in film production.
