Ariel Cameron - ARTIST & CURATOR
By accident, or perhaps a twist of fate, I found myself living in my childhood home as the world went into Covid_19 lockdown. Uninhabited since my father's passing in late 2019, I found myself alone and confined to the borders of his property at the end of a long dirt road. For the first time in years I've had time to take note of the details here; at all hours of the day, in the light and the dark. All the while processing the absence and presence of my father in this space.
Over the course of this residency I will create work reflecting on grief, loss, love and joy in the time of Corona - weaving together photography, sound and text. Viewers far and wide will have a chance to connect with the work in a digital space, immersing in the sounds, stories and visuals of this landscape.
