The article discusses representations of English rural landscape in the works of two British artists: Julian Opie and Ingrid Pollard. The analysis of Opie’s work entitled Imagine That You Are Moving (2001) employs the term of non-places, coined by Marc Auge. According to Auge’s definition, non-places are characterized by the lack of any link with history or identity. Opie’s set of light-boxes presenting stylized images of English low-land landscape, inserted in transfer zones of London’s Heathrow Airport, transforms the typical non-place of an airport into a place, which is characterized by a clear reference to a given context and identity. What is interesting is that for a representation of a typical English view Opie chose a rural low-land landscape, which is stereotypically perceived as quintessentially English.
