Swansula, Relics of Estuarine Magic
Project evolved from Brownfield Sister, 2019
Swansula is an expansive site-sensitive project drawn from an existing landscape, Swanscombe Peninsula.
A biodiverse triangle of marshland hugged by the River Thames in Kent, threatened by a multi-billion pound development The London Resort.
The world of Swansula manifests through a multimedia mosaic of works, animating an alternative vision for the landscape to one driven by capitalism that harms its fragile wetland ecology. A place of reclaimation, where to practice a deep faith in nature and a sanctuary for emotional emapancipation.
SQ Swansula Quartz 2099
SQ Swansula Quartz 2099 is a fictional time capsule encasing a digital archive of artworks; relics of a coven - the Lunasaws, who inhabit Swansula between 2028 and 2100 to reclaim and conserve the landscape.
SQ Swansula Quartz 2099 anthropologically explores the concept of rewilding, as a process of attunement, awakening, healing, sacrifice and readaptation.
