This installation by Kirsten Farrell furthers her exploration of landscape through the paradigm of mapping. Farrell reviews the way the story of the land is told by randomly reconfiguring Cadastral maps (relating to the measurement and ownership of land) and road maps of Canberra and surrounding areas. This work is both a construction of a fictional landscape and an enquiry into the boundary between painting and sculpture.
Kirsten Farrell is an artist who lives and works
in Canberra and is a graduate of the Australian National University School of Art. She has exhibited regularly in Canberra, Sydney and Melbourne and was included in the Helen Lempriere Traveling Art Scholarship Finalists Exhibition in 2003, 2004, and 2005.
