Nick Ross

Nick Ross explores the relationship between ‘fictional history’ and how it shapes our understanding of culture, identity and nationhood. Since living in Sweden, Ross has increasingly become interested in looking at how cultural icons and particular materials, shape our reading of a particular place or landscape. Ross is interested in investigating facts and happenings that have determined specific cultural balances. Every project comes from the desire to bridge the past to the contemporary.
