Reflections Upon an Unknown Country (in process)

The video work reflects upon the identity of the artist in relation to the fabricated natural environment of his youth along the southwest coast of Ireland. It explores this through biotopic processes of the Irish rockpool and the relationship different organisms have within this specific tidal zone, a harsh environmental space of aggression, exploitation and succession narratives. The rockpool becomes a synonym biotope for dual nationality of the artist and a non-typical created landscape he grew up in. The second part of the film reflects on this by focusing on the none native llama skeleton found on the family farm.

The film represents a different history than that of the typical Irish landscape. The different entities and natural environment represent ideologies that are reflected through the filmic images; with its ruins in the background this could as well be South American, where llamas originate. The film shows us a reflection in how we perceive a natural biotope whole through images.
