The Alienation series conveys a sense of abandonment and entrapment prevalent within British identity and landscapes. Never before has there been a time in which disconnect is a defining emotion – a feeling which continues to damage and dominate through the continued restrictions of the pandemic – with constant distance from normality. Further to this, Villacci’s images communicate a sense of between geographic bodies, with the UK’s landscape sprawling, conceptually, outwards and away from the EU. He notes: “Our future is uncertain, but our present is well known. This project considers the relationship between the physical island we call home and us as inhabitants: how we have alienated ourselves.”
