Rearranging the Landscape with Carrie Walker

This past fall Vancouver artist Carrie Walker traveled to rural Pennsylvania to sketch the locations of a strange and brutal 1700's ritual called a "circle hunt", an event in which early colonists formed a 30-mile circle and slaughtered every animal within its borders. She aims to draw the animals back into their environment, thus creating a ritualistic reversal, a futile restoration, an archive and an epitaph, while at the same time illustrating the complexities and absurdities inherent in the relationship between civilization and wildlife. Work Only talked with her about bloodthirsty americans and how to draw a proper landscape, on a picturesque day at the Central Park duck pond.
