Can a lumen print be comparable to Venice’s present precarious existence? The threatening changes to its existence, like the lumen print, are imperceptible, slow and hidden to the outsider.
I was struck by how many visitors come to Venice to mourn it: to see it before it “dies” and mourn its loss, when really there is nothing to mourn and everything
I visited eight island of the Venetian Lagoon and used the lumen print as a method of documentation and metaphor for the Venice’s fragility. This project was made during the 2017 Venice Art Biennale Fellowship with the British Council.
I spent a month in Venice working at the British Pavillion and making a piece of work which investigated Venice.
