Contemporary Heritage: A new way of seeing

Wednesday, October 2nd, 2013

“This is Contemporary Heritage. A thoughtful, thought provoking series of commissions across the Pennine area that tell new stories, ask new questions and formulate new answers to its rich, often dark, histories.” 

Laurie Peake, Director of Projects and Programmes, Liverpool Biennial


Axis designed and branded a commission for Mid Pennine Art back in 2004 called Panopticons | Land. After that commission ended five years later, they developed a new series of commissions in some of the wonderful ‘heritage assets’ of the region titled Contemporary Heritage: A new way of seeing.

This publication is the first of two volumes, and is a document of the first three commissions:

Not Forgotten: Geraldine Pilgrim

Taken: Ailís Ní Ríain

No Match: Claire Morgan


ISBN 978-0-9509878-6-6


Volume 2 is currently in production.
