Abstract

Refereed journal paper. The paper is based on a close reading of texts in philosophy, cultural geography and 'polytheistic' psychology and works by a number of contemporary British artists. It follows on from the development and theorization of the interdisciplinary context for both the Sowdun Project, (a five year practice-led research project part-funded by AHRC) and for Biggs' work with LAND2 (see http://www.land2.uwe.ac.uk/). In its synthesis of elements from three fields - visual art practice, 'polytheistic' psychology and cultural geography - Biggs links the work of contemporary British artists to the thinking of the American art critic Rebecca Solnit via the cultural geographer Peter Bishop's reading of 'polytheistic' psychology and argues for a post-modern understanding of imaginal space.
