A Measure of Land exhibition runs in Hanover until 8 February

An exhibition focussing on perceptions of distance, speed, space and time is the first official showcase to be housed in the new gallery space at the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan).

Bob Levene’s A Measure of Land is the first work to go on display as part of the new Hanover Project, which is a contemporary art space situated in UCLan’s Hanover building.

The Sheffield based artist, who is currently a Fine Art Associate Lecturer at Sheffield Hallam University, is presenting a series of performances to camera including the works Depth of Field and Past Signal.

The solo exhibition is open now and runs until 8 February, between 9.00am to 5.00pm


Interested in how an individual’s understanding of the physical world is shaped by the limitations of the body they inhabit, she uses the land to experiment with our perceptions of distance, space, speed and time.

She adopts pseudo-scientific strategies and anthropological methods of recording to analyse the 'nature' of things, exploring the scientific and artistic approaches to making sense of the world. Her work manifests as recorded video and sound, performance, installations, films and photography.

The solo exhibition is open now and runs until 8 February, between 9.00am to 5.00pm.
