Terra Incognita

8 September 2022 11 September 2022


Terra Incognita (as above, so below) is a multiple styled public art project curated by Miasma and Look Again. It will be a major part of the upcoming Wonderland Festival. It takes place in Aberdeen from Thursday 8 to Sunday 11 September.

The project is co-curated by Miasma – Abby Quick and Eryka Aniol. It features exciting new work by 14 visual artists and designers, working collectively as Terra Incognita (as above, so below). Many of the artists are Gray’s graduates.

The project, ‘Terra Incognita’ (as above, so below), imagines curious, magical and uncanny aspects of the city. It gives people the opportunity to explore hidden sides of Aberdeen. Exhibits will include a sacred wishing well, a greenhouse radio station and a swing that is also a knitting machine. It also features a creature made of redundant satellite dishes and artworks created from mycelium fungus, among other things. In addition, there will be a programme of interactive and participatory workshops for the public.

Abby says: “As we look forward to the wider programme within Wonderland, we are grateful for the opportunity to present works and activity in the public space this year with generous support and mentorship from the Look Again team.”

Other artists involved are Ane Smith, Jack Murray Brown, Caitlin Dick, Jared Cameron, Phoebe McBride, Ray Downie, Maria Roman, Caitlyn Main, Saoirse Horne, Astrid Bjorklund, Emily Doherty and Samm Anga.

Look Again Co-Director, Hilary Nicoll said: “It is wonderful to be working with this talented group of artists and designers, supporting them to bring their uncanny take on the city to the public. We’re thrilled to be taking part in Wonderland and to be supporting arts, culture and importantly, creatives, from the region.

About POST

Kevin Mitchell and Chris Sansbury founded POST. This was from a desire to cut through the noise to share the great things that happen in Aberdeen. They focus on community, culture and also the interesting people of the city. The local artists, businesses and charities; photographers, musicians and entertainers. These are the people that make a positive impact on our city every day. So they use video, audio, writing and social media to amplify the voices in our community. And to ultimately give a platform to Aberdeen folk to engage and tell their own stories.

Recent work includes coverage of Spectra 2023, interviews with We Are Here Scotland founder Ica Headlam; Paralympic gold medalist, Neil Fachie; Aberdeen rapper Chef and his push for success; an article about the pedestrianisation of Union Street; coverage of Nuart Aberdeen and TEDx Aberdeen, as well as coverage of the campaign to Save the Belmont.

We are independent and entirely self funded. We just about cover our costs, but if you would like to help support our work, you could buy us a coffee.

Every one of us has the power, to plant an idea, a tree, a flower
