Walking on opposite sides of the World

Tara’s blog post 8.3.16

I am looking forward to the first stage of our residency in the Glenshane Pass, Sperrin Mountains when I will be able to collaboratively explore in more depth initial ideas developed while walking solo in various New Zealand locations.

The parallel walk I took with Rachel Gomme, me in New Zealand while she was in England, was timed so that we were walking together but on opposite sides of the world. I enjoyed the spontaneous responses to our very different environments, in particular exploring ideas around collecting and displacing found objects/materials along the journey, experimenting with whole forms, fragments of and scale.

It will be interesting to see what direction we as a collective take in the Glenshane Pass and where our explorations lead us onto next.
