CuratorSpace Artist Bursary #17: Erika Cann

Erika Cann's work investigates place through accounts and narrative, both historical and contemporary, within the guides and maps of an area. She navigates the environment through climbing - pushing, pulling, jamming and squeezing her way up and through time, geologies and accumulated narratives. The work takes the form of photography, film, and printmaking, which is often imbued with language.
