Topophilia. Yukon Arts Centre Art Gallery, Whitehorse, Canada 2019

-Topophilia. Yukon Arts Centre Art Gallery, Whitehorse, Canada 7 March - 25 May 2019.
http://yukonartscentre.com/gallery/

My artistic practice is rooted in the places in which I live and work. Topophilia means a strong sense of place; a connection with a place.

The core of my work touches the notions of place, history and landscape, and in the different ways in which environments are represented, commodified, and stereotyped.

I have a soft spot for semi-urban places in which processes of erosion and growth are visible. My interest in cultivated and restrained nature leads me to metropolises as well as areas no longer in focus of geopolitical attention. Places in a dreamy state of oblivion such as former Cold War nuclear missile bases and abandoned military areas in Eastern Europe. The political dimensions of the locations and sceneries remind one of their troubled past and an uncertain future.
