Liznojan, of Joanne Coates
York, United Kingdom
Liznojan means to learn whilst following a track. This series allows for a new experience with nature to take place through the activity of walking. Both poetic and ambiguous in nature, the work channels larger issues though avoiding the grand narrative.
Liznojan is the work that allow for a new experience with nature to come forth. Spending nights in the wild, finding a way through mists in bogs and trenches, something very different occurs.
To rediscover the landscape for what it is, one must go back, search forgotten histories. People belong to the landscape. Their histories are embedded within the land. This is a union between a mythical fiction and the English everyday, in order to create a sense of ambiguity and unease. I would present the works alongside a zine that would further develop the work.
