Impossible Colonies incorporates a wide range of references from practices of archiving and archive digitisation, water as liminal space, landscape gaze and notions of souvenirs as memory objects.
Combining elements of photography, printmaking and sculptural objects Impossible Colonies explores alternative scenarios through the future seen in the past. By taking a nearly century old utopian project out if it’s geographical and political conditions and opening it up to the current global context this work invites to imagine a new direction.
Development and making of Impossible Colonies is supported by the Lithuanian Culture Council and Edinburgh Art Festival.
