Nostalgia for an Unknown Land / Installation in collaboration with Tara Ernst / 2010

Tara Ernst and I reenacted the attempt to find or lose ourselves in each other’s respective countries (Germany and Canada). Through personal reflections and childhood memories of both artists, the viewer takes a mythical journey that explores the irreconcilability of nostalgia and its complex relationship to our utopian dreams of a better place, be it past or future, somewhere we’ve been, or somewhere we long to go.
