Janet Bellotto: Relation-Ships (Existence Doubtful)




Canadian-Italian artist Janet Bellotto presents her exhibition Relation-Ships (Existence Doubtful) that brings Sable Island to MOCA London. The island, a protected National Park Reserve of Canada, is a 13 square mile sliver of an isolated sandbar 109 milessoutheast of Nova Scotia in the Atlantic Ocean.

It is noted for its extensive history of shipwrecks and a place where only two mammals survive: seals and horses, occupying a place that seems untouched by time.

Viewed from the street, footage of the horses and seals, intercut with shifting images within fog will be projected onto the front glass walls of the gallery. Upon entering the gallery, one will see a dramatic display of the names and dates of the shipwrecks, as well as images on screens showing scenes of daily life on a nearly forgotten fragment of sand uniquely and virtually bereft of human presence.
