Longyearbyen, Svalbard, 10° from the North Pole | Spring 2019
Why the arctic? In my work studying the relationship between Vision and Body, I look at the land and the way a body can immerse and internalise the surroundings. I seek these immersive experiences to make artwork from the terrain and the stories.
Water and the structural dynamics of nature are themes in my work. Svalbard joins several themes of interest such as light, geology, political stakes as an international territory, and Benjamin Vidmar’s Polar Permaculture food production. In Svalbard I will continue to investigate epistemologies, or ways of knowing, and the question of language and embodied ways of knowing in artwork on the formative senses in creating Visions of reality.
During my residency, I will maintain multi-media journals, complete a Haiku translation project, make visual art, and record dance performances.
