FERAL NEIGHBOURHOODS, INTERLUDE I     07

Enmeshment,
Plexus






ARTIST Katherine Kennedy
FERAL ECOLOGIES
Scallop Shells
LOCATION Bridgetown, Barbados


CONCEPT In her ‘Invasive Species’ series, Kennedy explores an intersection of social, environmental, cultural and psychological impacts as a Caribbean woman in Barbados, with particular emphasis on the island’s contentious relationship with tourism as its main economic sector. The reliance on tourism has altered the landscape through the introduction of wildlife and structures that cater to an image of ‘paradise’. In Enmeshment and Plexus, synchronised movements of embellished shells and domestic objects are coupled with distorted environmental sounds, presenting an interplay of enchantment and tension with the touristic gaze and its effects on agency, autonomy and identity.
