A unique SITE SPECIFIC WALL PAINTING AT INGLEBY GALLERY BY ARTIST AND POET THOMAS A. CLARK, also realised as a 3-colour screenprint

The Hidden Place is an alternative map of Scotland. Place names tell of old cultures, of history, geography, industry, religion and myth. Scottish place names have their origin in several languages; Gaelic, Pictish, Norse, English, French, Latin and Scots. In The Hidden Place over 100 place names are replaced by phrases revealing the original meaning of these names, and so each place becomes a piece of condensed folk poetry, revealing the riches of the past with a quiet lyricism. Bay of the bent grass, place of pebbles, ridge of tears. The HIdden Place is one long poem about the land and its people.
