Common Path

David Baker has been successful in securing a £9.9k Arts Council grant for the non-selling exhibition of his Common Ground project for a four month period from December 2017 in the Southampton City Art Gallery.

Common Ground is a three-year photographic project centred on Southampton Common that artistically interprets a landscape that has been shaped by human activity through management of the space. The project shows a commonly used city resource and explores the intersection between the man-made and the managed natural resources. One of the project’s aims is to enable the audience to develop their own relationship with the Common.
