Last month I took part in ‘Landscapes of Post-War Infrastructure’, an online event for the Modernist Society & Manchester school of Architecture.
I talked to the landscape painter, Jen Orpin about our shared interests in the memories and mythology of roads, motorways and service stations. The event was compered by David Cooper.
You can watch a recording of the event below:
And here’s where you can look at more of Jen’s work – Jen Orpin.
There were two other events in this series, in which writers and artists talk about their approaches to overlooked, neglected and underestimated places.
Martyn J Bull talks to Brian Lewis (compèred by Mark Thomas)…
Kevin Crooks talks to Helen Angell (compèred by Luca Csepely-Knorr.)
