Artist Statement

Marion Archibald's research and practice is rooted in her interest in the journeys that we all take in our lives, both literal and figurative - crossroads that we come to and decisions that we make determine the roads and paths that our lives follow. For some, this journey is a literal one, moving from place to place, searching for somewhere that gives them a sense of belonging. For others, the journey is a spiritual one - a metaphor for the search for the authentic self.

Primarily working with photography, Marion also incorporates video, found objects, artist books and small-scale sculptures into her practice. Her work records ambiguous and uninhabited places, each with their own unique presence; places that we have moved through and left behind on our journeys.
