Alan Rutherford


Alan Rutherford’s sculptural work seeks to explore conditions of loss and disappearance, where the past built environments become ‘sites of memory’. By accessing found texts and researching local archives, pastiche re-creations of places and scenes are re-created with items that have been pulled directly from the landfills of history.
