What Remains in the Silence is a mixed media installation piece that was developed during a two month residency at The Banff Centre for the Arts.
This work comprises a group of performance based photographs which present alterations of a series of self-portraits, and a group of wooden sculptures representing a pack of wolves that play into narratives constructed from western and local imagery.
What Remains in the Silence proposes a reflection upon identity and the relationship to "otherness" as an ongoing border to negotiate subjecthood.
Using the elements that were at hand, on site (clay, construction debris, plywood) What Remains in the Silence reflects on notions of belonging and dispossession; it intends to work-through the difficulties and poetics of inhabiting the borderland between failure and desire, language and intuition, foreignness and homeland.
