Nor Stamp Hard on the Ground Neither
Amelia Crouch, 2015

Amelia Crouch’s video overlays Adam Petrie’s Rules of Good Deportment or of Breeding (1720) with scenes filmed in the landscape to uncover the ‘natural’ as a cultural construct embedded in both landscape design and bodily movement. It considers whether Brown’s rejection of explicit philosophical or political symbolism was mirrored by a contemporary shift from civility (a symbolic, moral code) to etiquette (a set of rules without moral impetus.

The work was exhibited at The Hepworth Wakefield as part of Pavilion’s Follies of Youth project.
