Artist Statement

Traverse is an immersive, interactive exhibit that considers the spaces between us and nature. Katya Roberts invites the viewer to embark on a metaphorical journey of natural and human forces and the extent to which they are both at odds with each other and at times in harmony. With music by Chris Kostelec, they pose the questions, If landscapes could speak, what would they say to us? If they do speak, where can we hear them? With imagery inspired by Iceland’s geologically active landscapes, Iceland becomes the backdrop against which Katya Roberts proposes we evaluate our relationship to the landscapes we traverse.

On display at the Rochester Art Center from October 06, 2018 to December 30, 2018.

With sound collaboration with Chris Kostelec.
