Movement / Indian Ocean

Movement/Indian Ocean is an attempt to visualise and explore the following emergings from my experience and research within this region:

You don't move in straight lines in order to bypass straight border lines

Connections: across, within and without

Details within narratives: particulars and feelings

Let the archive live

Still haunted

Alternative languages that can speak into all of this

Horizon Lines

Through photocopy glitches and textures I have tried to seek out horizon lines that speak into both space as well as noise. Within this body of work, I am exploring the desert, and the southern Malagasy saying that the desert is housed within a cube, the edges of which (north, south, east and west) are the invisible barriers that send your voice back to you when you call out (echo), a game played by children of the desert regions. This work has been inspired by Temandrota, a Malagasy artists who I have worked with on several occasions. As an outsider, my interpretations of such musings can only ever be imaginative as I have never experienced growing up in this way, and thus the use of glitchy photocopies as a visual medium to explore begins to make sense here.
