Artist’s Statement: “Nassau-born artist Blue Curry, now living in London, had an idea for an installation that would subtly challenge the image of Nassau as merely a playground for tourists and at the same time would honor an aspect of its history. His project for Unsettled Landscapes, called S.S.s, is a live video feed of Nassau’s port, where cruise ships come in daily, spilling thousands into the city: ‘Along with 45 artists and artist collaboratives from 16 countries, I am participating in the inaugural edition of SITElines, SITE Santa Fe’s new biennial exhibition series with a focus on contemporary art from the Americas. Unsettled Landscapes is the first in this series and will look at the urgencies, political conditions and historical narratives that inform the work of contemporary artists across the region through three themes: landscape, territory, and trade.’"Read more: http://us2.campaign-archive2.com/?u=4239b99636661ce7589046559&id=72e735370c  and http://www.popopstudios.com/blue-curry-unsettled-landscapes/
