Bamberton: Contested Landscape

"Bamberton: Contested Landscape" Open Space. Victoria, BC. 2010
January 8 - Feb 20 2010

Bamberton: Contested Landscape is an immersive installation that reuses materials from the artists building demolitions and previous work. The installation confronts land use issues on the Vancouver Island site of Bamberton and Malahat Mountain through architectural references in the individual structures. These structures enable visitors to physically move through, over, under and around the installation, allowing for a tactile interaction with the artists’ interventionist strategies and theme of contested space. Changes in elevation and position are coupled with the physicality of weathered wood and the Bomfords’ characteristically imaginative architecture.
