The street in front of LhGWR was a mess when i visited the gallery last Friday. Such things influence you when entering a venue and may even influence the way
the urban wilderness outside, which, in a way, is remarkable as it deals with wilderness itself. It’s the humid wilderness on Vancouver Island along
the Pacific coast of Canada. You might call it the western frontier of western colonization: for all its questionable victories it has fallen into a state of deterioration,
kept alive by some technology and history, and surrounded by trees and wild animals. Photographer Bueno tells a story about Doug’s very basic camp site and
its surroundings. Her photo’s act as text while found objects, pictures, some exquisite drawings by Medy Oberendorff, etc. act as illustrations. The place itself
was based on fear of the dangers of the East at the other side of the big ocean. Different worlds of aw, decay and beauty meet each other while in the background
you constantly hear Coast to Coast, the Conspiracy Theory radio. Around this very evocative exhibition there are some more pictures by Bueno on show.
