Memories of an Unknown Island – book

Jane & Jeremy – publisher Véronique Rolland‘s ‘Memories of an Unknown Island’ is a project about a place that does not exist – a utopia created from a collection of photographs from a plethora of locations Rolland has visited. Together they visually and emotionally blend into one and transform into an ideal fictional land. In doing this the boundaries are blurred between the real and the constructed, it is the creation of an island that is not real, made up of previous memories and fleeting moments, it is grounded in the factual but transformed into a fantasy.

This work is part of a project about the centroid location of Britain, the point at which a cardboard cut-out of the area could be perfectly balanced on the tip of a pencil. Islands are assumed fixed to the mainland in their precise position by invisible, weightless wires. It lies in the most desolate and remote place in the Forest of Bowland, in Lancashire, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. This project looks to question the exactitude of place and our relationship to identity within notions of the contemporary Sublime. See more
