THE PILGRIMAGE, 2010
This work is a reflected manifestation of a performace I conducted in summer 2010. It is exploring one’s relationship and deep emotional bond with the land and landscape in which they were born. On a more personal level the walk also marked an end to a 10 year period of a personal life journey I have embarked on since leaving the place and country of my birth.
During the performance I undertook a 10 day (187km) solitary journey across the Sumava Mountains in Czech Republic, where I grew up. For the duration of the journey I slept in the open air and tried to understand and absorb the language and rhythm of the landscape. I kept a written, photographic and video diary recording my feelings and observations.
Over the following year I reflected upon my experiences and developed a body of work consisting of a 10 sculptures that together form an installation capturing the essence of each day of the journey.
