Working with Julio Space in the 20th arrondisement in Paris, in a two person show for the Biennale de l’Image Tangible (2018) with Laure Tiberghien. Folded and transferred photographs of the Andes challenging the role of cartography in our sense of space and experience of place. The images juxtaposed as a single piece re create an imagined landscape based on actual photographs of the Altiplano of the Andes. These marginal spaces remind us of the failure to grasp the whole, as human perception takes in the view in small fragments. The sculptural triangular photographic pieces, re  narrate this experience and as stand alone, abstracted and transferred photographic fragments, can be positioned in multiple compositions to unite these into a single, layered view.

My work is concerned with auratic translations, interpretation and fiction in our encounters with the landscape. I use photographic installations, projections and print editions to explore notions of the politics of place, resistance and ruin. I am interested in the spaces between what we know and what we think we know about the world, and have investigated these ideas in a series of installations and prints over the last few years.
