Taking inspiration from H.G. Wells’ ‘The Time Machine’, Ballard’s ‘Drowned World’ and Jarman’s ‘The Last of England’, A Garden Futuricity by artist John Vincent is a fictional construction of a future world ravaged by war and climate change. Set in Letchworth Garden City, the work poses the question: what if the global issues frequently reported finally reached this quiet town? The exhibition takes the form of two distinct works – a large scale wall-based digital print and a video work. The site-specific print depicts an imagined view looking out from the gallery space through a hole blown from the wall. The wall is a barrier breached to reveal a surrealistic dystopian vision of catastrophic proportions - a parallel universe of a world flooded and in ruins with many familiar buildings damaged or destroyed altogether.
