I am pleased to announced that I will (briefly) be back in Sydney next month to open a collaborative exhibition featuring work from myself, my father and my mother.
In March 2015, my father and I travelled to the Faroe Islands, a small territory of Denmark halfway between Norway and Iceland. Below you can find a video highlighting our travels (music by the fantastic ORKA, Faroe natives).
The first thing you notice is the wind. Whether you are high on a hill, at the mouth of a fjord, or in an apparently sheltered valley, it can whip up on you at a moment’s notice, removing any loose clothing (or camera equipment) you had not properly secured. These islands are a harsh place to live (especially if you’re a sheep), but unarguably beautiful in their isolation and hostility.
This exhibition will feature over 20 original photographic works from my father (Peter) and I in sizes ranging up to 2.6m. Accompanying many of these pieces are felt responses designed by my mother, Lizette, handcrafted from Faroese wool. In the blue pot above left you can see the wild sea and the bright green lights of the salmon farm pictured below.
