Imprint is rooted in personal and national narratives – stories of refuge sought in a country founded on a Colonial process itself saturated with the displacement. A winter storm insists its presence on an expansive flat plain where a figure performs a ritual in two parts. One is a contest between footsteps and the blowing snow, a marking, unmarking and remarking of territory. The other, a deliberate act of remembrance, is an echo of the Jewish custom of leaving pebbles on a grave. Drawing on notions of agency, memory and loss, Imprint speaks to stories of the movement of people in which location and dislocation are inextricably intertwined.
