Summary:Hornby Island is a northern Gulf Island, which sits within an archipelago, near Vancouver Island on the West Coast of British Columbia, Canada. Seeming to sit slightly out of time, its counter cultural atmosphere was somewhat shaped by the shared visions of its settlers during 1960s and 1970s. Hornby's characteristic vernacular buildings still embody the wish to turn against rampant consumerism, pollution and political horror - towards handmade houses; food; clothing and contentment. 'Land ends' was made during Melissa Moore's various self-styled long-term residencies on the island - exploring her own "feedback between art and nature". An enchantment by a particular landscape and its mythology is palpable in this sequence of distinctive works.
