Weary Harold, the Byronic hero from the epic poem, Childe Harold’s Pilgrimage, has been both venerated and ridiculed through the ages for his ambitious longing for adventure, connection and purpose. He travels the world in a quest for meaning beyond life’s shallow pleasures yet is often left unfulfilled. Upon discovering relics of war and empire in every country, Harold is nostalgic for a place that no longer exists and is left to ruminate on the acquiescent beauty of what remains. This is where our exhibition takes place- looking to the spaces between weary and wonder; familiar and fatigued, experience and exploit.
