Private Views Made Public

'Private Views Made Public takes the stage in Liverpool as part of the Liverpool Independents Biennial'

The film ‘Private Views Made Public’ by Patricia Mackinnon-Day was shown at the Liverpool Biennial Festival of Contemporary Art in September 2010. Patricia is the artist in residence at Cheshire West and Chester’s Habitats and Hillforts project. Lovingly filmed by internationally recognised artist Patricia Mackinnon-Day, the film focuses on the chain of six historically important Iron Age hillforts that line the hill tops of Cheshire’s visually stunning Sandstone Ridge. The film shows an evolving landscape changing in front of your eyes.

The film was originally shown as part of the Chester Screen Deva festival and has also been seen at the Grosvenor Museum.

Said Chester based artist Patricia Mackinnon-Day

“Private Views Made Public was a challenging project accessing monumental hillforts off the beaten track and setting up equipment in all kinds of weather throughout the year. The time–lapse cinematography produced high quality films that evoke for the viewer a contemplative sense of time and place. The diverse range of rural communities I came into contact with have inspired ideas for new work. I am currently researching the lives of women living and working in isolated areas.”
