To unsettle means to disturb, unnerve, and upset, but could also mean to offer pause for thinking otherwise about an issue, or an idea. This catalogue seeks to explore and unsettle the site of Scarborough, offering subtle and not so subtle gestures of reversal, of questioning, of disturbance, inviting readers to pause and think about the space and place they occupy. The exhibition was a culmination of a longer project that artists participated in, involving The Guild Park and Gardens in Scarborough where the artists completed a number of site-specific interventions during the early summer 2017, and a followup exhibition at Doris McCarthy. This catalogue is a record of those events, while it also provides some historical and contemporary socio-political background to which the works responded.
