For the January 2023 edition of London Art Fair, 12 artists have made a work in response to the question, If you could save one place . . .
This sparked a range of responses from the artists. Interestingly only a few of the works made are place specific. Several refer to home, others to a moment, others refer to a notion, others to an environmental phenomena that they have personally witnessed.
The reason for asking the question? We must stay engaged in order to catalyse change: we need to nurture agency and empowerment. Artists have the power through their work to engage an audience.
Each of them writes a poignant and personal account about what they have made and why. I would like to thank each of them for taking on this project with such trust and enthusiasm.
