In the course of their enquiries

Uncharted is a series of large photographic images that deal with the way we inhabit and move through space and how we navigate these challenges both together and alone. The exhibition looks at physical mapping of space and the photographs are displayed with made and found objects focusing on the idea of artist as both maker and curator. The work was developed during a two month residency in Berlin with further exploration of landscapes in Switzerland, the Blue Mountains and the South Coast.
