[Newfound] Land as...

Digital photo montages, inkjet print on Hahnemühle Photo Rag, 90 x 60 cm, 2020

The tableaus represent different conceptions of the notion of land − as landscape, resource, property, soil, terrain, nature, wilderness, home, and creature − seen through a Newfoundland lens. They are informed by relations to the different modes of land identified in a cross-disciplinary and cross-genre (and necessarily fragmentary) selection of the written discourse on the island. Among the many types of relations, illusion, desire, attachment, abuse, and, above all, ambivalence figure prominently. All photo footage was collected in Newfoundland.
