Time to think in Kilpisjärvi

Borders project is a collaboration with artist and potter Lou Gilbert Scott, funded by an Arts Council International Development Award, supported by the Finnish Institute in London and Arts Producer Kaisa Kerätär. We had time at the end while in Kilpisjarvi, to reflect on how the journey affected our own practices and to think of the beginnings of new work. The following photographs are of work I made in the mountain Birch forest zone at the foot of Saana Fell, a place sacred to the Sami.
