Joya: AiR / Tori Ferguson / New Zealand
I came to Joya: AiR with a tangle of loose ideas to work through – land use over time, the sedimentation of memory, repetitive processes and the life cycle of rocks. I immersed myself in reading and simultaneously explored the astounding landscape, climbing the hills and following the labyrinthine barrancas. As the land slowly revealed itself to me, the interwoven concepts become clearer.
The long days, visual expanses and Donna and Simon’s warmth and openness provided an ideal space for working with ease and rigour.
