I am about to re-visit the place of my birth, Yellowknife, Canada.
I have always, perhaps instinctively, felt the need to go back there. It is as if ‘Yellowknife’, the place, has left its imprint upon me.
Within my new work I hope to explore and communicate ideas to do with having a strong bond with a place, and also feelings of ‘existence’ within wilderness in an intimate and more intense way. I will continue to make work in an attempt to somehow encounter, or recover my experiences of northern wilderness.
