MEANDER: A Collaborative Essay For A Continental Drift

November 14, 2015

Pacific Sky Exhibitions in Eugene Oregon is pleased to welcome Patrick Beaulieu’s MEANDER a continental drift with a collaborative writing response by Canadian artist and writer Victoria Stanton presented in the exhibition as a take-away broadside.

In July 2014, Patrick Beaulieu embarked on a slow continental drift. Traveling by kayak he crisscrossed meanders that took him from the source of a river in southern Quebec, to the Atlantic Ocean at the mouth of the Hudson River in New York. He explored the condition of such places that can only be discovered by surrendering oneself to the contemplation of forces beyond our comprehension. Navigating through this venerable passage within the rhythms of subtle currents, he sought to visually capture these points of confluence – where the intersection of landscapes and human encounters generate poetry.

Composed approximately one year later, the broadside continues this poetic consideration of the relationship between the body and water; between isolation and oneness; between knowing and unknowing.
