September – October 2023
Liz Charters is a visual artist working in sculpture and installation, through the combined media of light, text and video. Their work is concerned with space, place and feeling. Most often working with neon and fluorescent light, Liz is curious about the physical and psychological impacts that both artificial and natural environments have on our way of living.
While in Dawson City, Liz hopes to connect the ways in which light defines our experience of place and time to their own experience of chronic illness and disability. Liz will research the experience of light in the north, explore the connection between light and the body, and investigate how the effect of waning light might function as a metaphor for illness.
