There Was A Country Where They Were All Thieves

4 May – 7 June 2012

What might it mean to be overexposed to a land? Such that one is like a glacial striation on bedrock- a pattern of selfness and crystal.

The countryside is as much an imagined terrain as it is an assemblage of components: rock, crops, air, people and histories. Hence, the look and shape of land is a production of labour, industry and capital as much as it is a factor of wind speeds and sedimentary formations. This exhibition is an accumulation of fictions that are registrations of/from place, taking the form of immersive dispatches, field notes and temporal mediations.
