Hinterlands - Liam Campbell
In the photographic series Hinterlands Campbell
Explores the physical manifestations at the fringes of
The urban. The practices and objects depicted implant
Themselves in geographical & temporal locations.
Campbell’s photographs document allotment gardens
& objects at the fringes of the urban. Borderline
Regions between streets & fields, in an inter-zone that
Is neither rural nor urban.
The improvised sheds built from the detritus of the
Everyday become like tailor made vessels of identity.
“ form is a rigid container, and within is substance.
Beyond their practical function, therefore and
Specifically objects of furniture have a primordial
Function that belongs to the register of the imaginary”
Jean Baudrillard - The System of Objects.
