Means of escape
For Gwenan, the works for the Outlandia residency came through a short period studying the town of Fort William and its visitors looking to experience the nature of the area through the pre-arranged tourist facilities available. Having spent a few days in the town itself and climbing to her residency studio in Glen Nevis, she reflected on the means that people escape to the 'wild'. The resulting works are a series of photographs that highlight the problematic contradictions between the human desire to relate to nature and modern day commercial tourism.
