The Land of Cockaigne: Travels Through Brexit

About This Project

The Land of Cockaigne:
Travels Through Brexit

Photographs by Ian Land

This exhibition documents the photographers walk along the coastal route from Hastings to London, a region that had voted solidly for Brexit in the 2016 referendum. Land’s series of austere b&w images convey a desolate and fractured Britain.

“As I walked, Union flags seemed much more prominent than I recalled previously, the multitude of Keep Out and Private signs which had always been there took on a sinister air, and the irony of walking for many miles on land closer to France than it is to London became overwhelming.”

A quietly disturbing and thought provoking exhibition. On now at the Hastings Arts Forum.
