Come Back to Me – a pre-apocalyptic lament, often situates the individual as a point of departure, where we may consider identity as a distorted perception of self and memory as form. These works then sprawl into a psychogeography that encounters contemporary modular forms, deserted architecture and the imposition of new borders. Haunted by nostalgia, and laden with the clunk of contemporary disillusionment, Come Back to Me contemplates perhaps the ultimate escape; to outer space, as we wrestle to comprehend the impending catastrophe of the geological epoch; the Anthropocene.
Come back to me…… This is not a boomerang.
