Erratic Encounters


Erratic Boulders encountered during walks in the Hardanger Region of Norway and along the coast in Brittany, France have been photographed and isolated from their natural surroundings.

The resulting lack of understanding of scale, depth and relationship with environmental contexts mirrors the process of uprooting and involuntary migration, which they underwent as part of glacial movements. It encourages a re-reading of the boulders as things that are far from inanimate and dead, but things through which we can think, experience and feel. The audience is also confronted with shadows and traces of things that are no longer visible in the image, creating moments of confusion and frustration.
