When Anna King graduated from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art in 2005 she was considered one of the most promising Scottish artists of her generation. Since that time numerous successful solo exhibitions of her work have been held in the UK.
I love to explore empty, feral places: wastelands, abandoned buildings and barren pieces of scrub-land.
I find myself in a no-mans land. Unclaimed territory, that, for a while anyway, I can have as my own. It’s an adventure playground that nobody meant to build, a desolate, wild expanse of cracking concrete and decaying structures. Once a hive of human activity, these forgotten places have no purpose left –
but no rules either – and nature is slowly and relentlessly taking the land back.
