Charlotte Prodger’s new video LHB continues her exploration of the complex intertwinings of landscape, identity, technology and time. Her residency in Berwick-Upon-Tweed marks the beginning of an open-ended period of research into an idea of ‘queer rurality’; how queer lives are lived beyond the densely-populated urban contexts that generally dominate LBGTQI narratives, and what happens to the contingent coded signifiers of queer bodies within wildernesses.
