Leah Fusco Gallery

The Leah Fusco Gallery opened in Rye, Kent a few months back. Leah has made some really interesting and sensitive work exploring a place through 'psyco-geography' - the hidden stories and formative histories of specific sites. She mainly makes work around the Kent coast, including a series about Beachey Head (the famous suicide landmark) and Dungeness (the windswept site of a strangely placed nuclear power station, and incidentally where artist and filmmaker, Derek Jarman lived). The image below comes from her work at Dungeness. Get along and have a look!
