LEXIS OVER LAND : TOWARDS A FEMINIST GEOGRAPHY

“This exhibition will map together work made by nine artists, who share a perception that the human body and the gestures it makes are interlocked with the ground, or geography that supports it. Respectively their work gives expression to an idea that where the body marks place, it itself becomes marked by place and that these things are incarnations of one another.
The exhibition’s interest in an engendered relationship between body and ground is intended to map the topography of a distinctly female viewpoint on the subject and its relation to an archetype in Western culture that joins a feminine body to an earthly one.” – Nina Royle
‘SOWING THE SEEDS WITH THE FRUITS OF FERTILITY’
(PHOTOGRAPHS EXHIBITED IN ‘LEXIS OVER LAND’ BY DAISY RICKMAN)
In tune with the falling leaves of Autumn comes a reflection upon the cyclical changes within both the seasons and our bodies in relation to the land and shifts within the presence of these cycles. Painted with the light of the sun through the eye of my camera, these photographs pay homage to her luminescence as we see the journey of this presence fade amidst the celebrations of harvest and day falling into night. It is this duality between light and dark that draws my eyes to the spectrum of vision in which I choose to seek, and it is in turn the infinite mystery held within this light that inspires me to capture what it is I have been captured by. In circling dreams and visions of constant motion, I seek no more than to capture a dance of the inner light’s eye.
