Tyne Gordon: Visitor
CoCA is excited to present a body of work from Tyne Gordon that responds to her own experience of natural phenomena in New Zealand.
In 'Visitor', a liminal experience is created in the space between boundaries (domesticity, walls, corners, geometry) and expansion (wilderness, organic material, infinity, atmosphere, liquidity). 'Visitor' is a continuation of Gordon’s interest in internal and external concepts of landscape and the body, seen through a ritualistic, alien lens.
"'Visitor' is a conjuration that allows the dichotomy between the human body and the non-human landscape to be temporarily transcended."
- Jasmine Gallagher
