Created whilst undertaking an artist residency in Argentina, Rachael shares her response to the arid & vast Patagonian landscape & elements of settler history combined with the domestic space she occupied at Residencia Corázon & how this mediated her relationship with the outside world.
“My work is concerned with domestic space and the idea of home, and how it mediates our relationship with the outside world. How it separates, protects and confines. I am interested in exploring the divide between urban domestic space and environments that exist at its peripheries, which at some point in history, have been deemed isolated, inhospitable or wild – undomesticated. Through my photographic practice, and the travel it brings about, I negotiate physical and conceptual boundaries of home, reassessing and altering what constitutes my own sense of home and belonging. Additionally my work is informed by cultural and individual histories that expose how other people encounter and negotiate their sense of home in unfamiliar environments.” – Rachael Ireland
