Landscapes In Dialogue: reflections by Alice Angus
About : an eBook by Alice Angus to accompany a set of drawings (Ecologies, Time, Landmarks, Traces, Wilderness, Perception, 2010) created for a touring show during the 25 year anniversary of Ivvavik National Park in Canada which was created by a historic Aboriginal land claim settlement. These works are a reflection on the experience of a Parks Canada residency in Ivvavik and the long term issues of ownership, belonging, common space and environment, raised by the trip.
