of the river / de la rivière

This installation is made of linen paper, in which the paper has been moulded around stones that were collected at the river. The stones have been are removed and the paper reformed, so that what remains becomes the cast-off skin of a stone.

The stones are of the earth. They are the memory of the river, of the people, of the place. These paper skins present an interpretation, an impression, a reading of the stones. The installation is questions the extent to which the page can hold memory and of the extent to which all becomes interpretation. It is a joining of rock, paper and hand in an attempt to record a place and its impermanence.
