Artist Statement:
No longer can we be sedate in our relationship to place. The Western world has seen its colonization and consumption of the Land as an exercise of eminent domain, unaware, or insensate to the fact that the impacted Land has a reciprocal effect upon its inhabitants. In 2020, we can no longer ignore the effect the changing environment has upon us. As this major cultural transition envelops us, we must redefine and reevaluate our relationship to Land, not only as fuel for the raw engine of capitalism, but in its capacity as a cultural reliquary for memory and narrative.

Through installations, sculptures and drawings that focus on the psychology of Land, Ciara Wright’s work humorously interferes with preconceptions of our relationship to place. With the use of sound and other interactive components, Wright toys with the possibility of manifesting Land’s agency, giving it a ‘voice’ in the contemporary examination of our complicity in a deteriorating natural world.
