Dr Louise Ann Wilson

Dr Louise Ann Wilson is an artist, scenographer and researcher who creates site-specific walking-performances.

Louise is a scenographer, visual artist and researcher who creates: socially engaged and therapeutic scenography that takes the form of multi-sensory site-specific walking-performance, books and artworks and sited-walks and installations in rural landscapes that emplace, re-image and transform ‘missing’, unmarked or challenging life-events. Louise also works with individuals, groups and communities to create bespoke 'life-event walks'

Louise creates 'Life-Event Walks' that emplace, re-image and transforming 'missing' unmarked or challenging life events. To develop this work Louise uses a creative 'mapping-walk' process and applies six principles base on the concept of the feminine (material) sublime and the writing and therapeutic landscape practice of Dorothy Wordsworth and her female contemporaries. Work includes: Mulliontide (2016), a coastal walk from Poldhu Cove to Mullion Cove in Cornwall, evolved in collaboration with local residents, that notices the effects of tide and time, acknowledges deep feelings for place and recognises the challenges of change – personal and topographical; Warnscale: A Land Mark Walk Reflecting On Infertility and Childlessness (Warnscale) (2015-ongoing), a self-guided walking-performance and specific to the Warnscale fells in Cumbria aimed at women who are biologically childless-by-circumstance and mediated through a published walking-guide/artist book.
