A View from (T)here examines the interconnections between Caribbean landscape, colonialism, capitalism and visual culture. It challenges the first-world construct of paradise, which has been imposed upon the Caribbean through tourism, rendering the region into a homogenous space disconnected from time. Contesting the dominant construct, this body of artwork re-presents landscape, and its metaphors, through strategies of story-telling, ambiguity and repetition; using photography, sound, video and installation. A View from (T)here attempts to symbolically reclaim the landscape and re-negotiate subjectivity, while implicating the viewer as active participants to put into question the power dynamics between north and south.
