Down North on the Labrador

Down North on the Labrador

Down North on the Labrador is a very deliberate alternative biographical voicing of the experience of 'Northness' from completely different experiences. The dominant written narrative of the text is that of the colonial motherland administrating medical assistance to the colony and inhabitants in an isolated landscape. A bit of a 'Boy's Own' experience subtlety contrasting the backward ways with those of the more civilised and knowing narrator. Deliberately and visually over laying it is a narration of a different time and gender whose inheritance is not that of the domineering historically colonial experience.

Pirates and Pigtail along with The Girl Who Played the Game, and Every Woman's Doctor Book are the final works in the series and they literally still 'under construction' they form part of other exhibition proposition that await future confirmation.

In all the books the pages, for better viewing, have been scanned into the PhotoShop program and printed on hand made paper in unlimited editions. Other proposition with further exhibitions and ensuing projects let the books act as reservoirs of thoughts, idea's for future 'might have been' and 'what ifs' that can be mined and developed into more not necessary substantial but different schemes.
