How To Feed A Wolf

Lora Robertson's avatar Lora Robertson

How To Feed A Wolf is a site-specific installation of found objects in combination with projected film. This work is a study of displacement and its broad effect on the poetic function of metaphor. The wreckage of a wooden boat is suspended in the rafters of a dormant garage. Nine panels of scrim float beneath it, as projection runs through the gossamer layers, with two projectors pointed at each other from opposite walls of the room. The two films show images of ritual and the verdant earth. The films advance and slowly collide at the central panel, creating a dissonant sense of place, one connected to earthy wandering and the other worried for the stability of attachment. A collection of amber glass bottles, relics left by an antecedent family, will be mounted as treasures on the walls. Their place in the world is uncertain. A careful assembly, but not important enough to travel ahead.
