In 1913 Kathleen Scott sailed to New Zealand hoping to meet her husband, Captain Scott
returning from the South Pole, only to learn en route that he and his men had died.
Boiling with the same blood, a century on I too washed up on that same shore
Broken-hearted in the slipstream of a Peter Pan.
Using installation, performance, sculpture moving image & sound I am asking
What forms are left us by our ancestors?
What are we leaving the generations still to come?
