Mark that Maps Itself

On Falling and Roads that Lead Nowhere

~

Lecture in the context of Durn That Road, an exhibition by Annabel Howland at Bradwolff Projects

Durn That Road is a work that witnesses a journey to an island, and it witnesses the people, gestures, words, animals and plants that compose its landscape. It witnesses the networks that capture a land to transform it into a territory, which can be exploited and robbed of its resources. It witnesses the invisible flows of capital that determine the visible devastation of a land. It witnesses the transformation of a habitat into materials and the transformation of the social textures of its inhabitants.
