Exhibition: Jeremiah Day - Of All Possible Things, Site Gallery, Sheffield, until April 14 2012

The rather unusual inspiration for Jeremiah Day’s debut solo exhibition was a Lidl superstore.

The outlet in question was built over a former checkpoint on the Berlin Wall and led Day to think about the mixed and unresolved legacies left by the Cold War.

The result is Of All Possible Things, where the artist draws on photography, audio recording and performance pieces to look at the lived experience of political struggle.

Day sees that historical sites can serve as allegories by utilising landscape, ideology and local memory as a means by which to explore incidents of world history.
