Refuge 2011


A solitary journey downriver from Pittsburgh to Clarksville, Tennessee, is accomplished in this motorized Jon boat with added shelter. The boat is installed within the Austin Peay University gallery for the show SCALE curated by Ally Reeves. A video viewed through the fill opening in a gas tank provides a glimpse of the artist as an idealized wanderer. An artist statement reminiscent of a commemorative plaque declares the artist as a significant Canadian explorer.
