Sculptural Installation plus text on frozen Lake Nipissing
Commissioned for Ice Follies Festival, North Bay
“Look, there's no sense pretending history is a goddamn Homeric odyssey” – Barbara Kingsolver, The Lacuna.
An Objective Odyssey is a site-specific installation on frozen Lake Nipissing for the Ice Follies Festival using found objects that were historically traded across the water. Employing the style of a contemporary detective fiction, revealing mysterious clues along the way, An Objective Odyssey makes use of these objects in order to playfully interrogate the history of trade and colonization through the waterways of Northern Ontario.
