Mandy Williams uses photography, video and sound to expand traditional representations of landscape. She approaches socio-political issues in an experimental, aesthetic style, seeking to comment on urgent narratives through unexpected, diverse visualisations. Her project, England, examines the exclusionary politics of contemporary England through the metaphor of landscape. It includes a video, photographic series and a free newspaper with fold-out posters and interview texts. In the sequence of black and white photographs coastal landscapes are merged with alien geographies accessed from NASA, representing a landscape that has become unstable, and which causes harm. Black borders cut across these images.
