Nor stamp hard on the ground neither

Crouch, Amelia ORCID logoORCID: (2015) Nor stamp hard on the ground neither. UNSPECIFIED.


Commissioned by Pavilion, Leeds responding to Whitley Beaumont – a landscape that has been attributed to the landscape architect Lancelot 'Capability' Brown. Exhibited at The Calder, The Hepworth Wakefield as part of 'The Follies of Youth' exhibition. Nor stamp hard on the ground neither is a moving image artwork by Amelia Crouch that depicts a series of actions, performed in the landscape and based on instructions from an 18th Century etiquette book about how a gentleman ought to walk. It combines two things that appear natural (Brown’s landscapes and a particular manner of walking) but that are actually cultural affectations from a particular period in history.
