About Mimeses North

Mimeses North is a collective of Northern, fine art
photographers who have come together in order to enhance individual interpretations
of our relationships with the world in which we live, exploring relationships of
fellow humans, animals, interactions with our landscape, across to all things

Mimeses North provides mutual support and critique
along with opportunities for specific collaborations, mounting group
exhibitions on their core theme.

In an increasingly competitive art world, the
collective is a way of opening and maintaining the conversation between artists
and an art loving public. By combining insights and debate with defined
collaboration in work, Mimeses North intends that their combined output will
always add up to more than the sum of parts.

Yvonne Davies presented a paper relating to her research in rural communities at an interdisciplinary conference organised by the University of Aberystwyth in collaboration with 'CREW' and 'INSPIRE'. The context of the debate aimed to respond to a range of material that addresses rural sustainability and regeneration, with a focus on how and why decisions are made at individual, local, community and government level.

Bringing together perspectives from geography, history, policy-making, regeneration practitioners and the arts, the conference will open up the gaps between individual and collective aspiration, and reality.

This summer, Yvonne Davies spent time on a south hill in the remote Hedmark region of eastern Norway. Working with wood craftsmen and local farmers she has begun a body of work around traditional rural crafts and a disappearing way of life.
