A Line from Me to You
Shayna Wells
24th - 27th June

A Line from Me to You is the outcome of Shayna Wells' residency in Iceland. Wells lived in a small community of five hundred people in north west Iceland for two months, with the resulting videos and photographs documenting and reflecting on her time there. Specifically, they represent the connections Wells made to the place, the people and to the landscape.

The focus of the video works in this exhibition is the performance element rather than the medium itself. Wells uses her body in the works as a connection between the emotional and psychological self and the physical world. They become a meditation on the process of seeing and the human interaction with the landscape.

The photographs more intimately reflect on Wells' residency as immediate insights into her emotional responses to the foreign. The variety of perspectives and perceptions of form they include is a metaphor for the multifaceted nature of the experience.
