Concurrent with the Masters thesis research practice, the work in Fabricated Country examines a landscape through an expanded painting installation. It floats this specific terrain, seen as an extraterritorial heterotopic space, a historical meeting place and a climate island ecosystem with an expiry date.
This work is conceived in the context of a contemporary global environment which is no longer merely exploited, but fundamentally subject to our actions and attempts at control. This precarious posture of support, its echos of a colonialist stance, and the reductive practice it entails is a key ingredient in the slide to the new post-truth world. Through this expanded painting work a flimsy and troubled terrain is speculatively rendered.
