So Below – new commission + -

‘So Below’ is a graphic essay by cartoonist and journalist Sam Wallman.

Exploring the idea of land ownership, Wallman melds the political with the poetic, connecting both historical and contemporary manifestations of territorialism and dominion.

Wallman’s idiosyncratic artwork critiques the notions of private property, land as commodity, national borders, exclusion zones, and the everyday resistance to these ideas from indigenous people, refugees, the homeless, grassroots communities, animals and plants.

In 2014, Wallman was nominated for a Walkley Journalism Award, and was recipient of the Media Human Rights Award for his collaborative piece At Work In Our Detention Centres: A Guard’s Story.

The commission will be launched online on June 24th, 2016.

This is a Nomad Projects commission – supported by The Arts Council England
