The body of work McGrath will show is entitled Project Cleansweep. It is a project that surveys the landscape of chemical and biological weapons in the British Isles and its continuing legacy, interrogating deliberate state and military encroachment into and appropriation (often secretive) of the landscape, essentially a massive ‘land grab’. This bucolic landscape today holds layers of narratives that the security apparatus of the state would prefer not told. It is an another representation of the impact of state and commercial interests on a rural setting; this has often caused long term problems of pollution and abandonment.
