WCS Presents Inhospitable Landscape, a cross-art form exhibition with a programme of events, created and produced by Wolstenholme Creative Space, including several commissions from selected outside artists including The Hive Collective and Craig Sinclair. 

Visually focusing on the physical landscape with a large-scale installation that literally brings ‘the outside, inside’, Inhospitable Landscape toys with concepts of social and cultural landscapes, the uncomfortable and inhospitable aspects of humanity. The Hive Collective presented Dystopia, a new commission for WCS in the form of an immersive and interactive video piece that views human kind as the unwanted guest within an otherwise balanced and harmonious planet earth, within a specially installed temporary space in WCS as part of the Inhospitable Landscape exhibition. 

The installation also included a specially commissioned piece of work by Tomo (Liverpool Art Prize 2012 People’s Choice Winner) inspired by the exhibition themes. 

WCS is a Creative Producer and a not for profit Contemporary Gallery and Venue based in Liverpool city centre with the aim to platform contemporary visual art and music. As well as providing a unique atmosphere for exhibitions, the gallery regularly plays host to a number of inspirational and experimental live music acts. 

The Hive Collective are a group of audio visual artists with previous commissions that include work with FACT and Future Everything as well as self-produced works.
