Ralph Overill’s research examines the relationship between figures of otherness and peripheral landscapes. Combining creative practice with theoretical and contextual study, Ralph explores the haunts of the 20th and 21st centuries, referencing popular cinematic and literary culture. From this he constructs a framework across psychogeographical and hauntological notions, including the work of J.G. Ballard, Robert Smithson, Iain Sinclair and Mark Fisher. His practice, with its roots in printmaking evolves to take ownership of spaces, embracing site-specific intervention, roadside walks, creative writing, installation and performative strategies, as Ralph searches for the essence of his own inner demons and his connection to the edge-lands of Essex in which he resides.
