Limbo-Land single screen video work. The work consists of Walker's performance with 2 meter inflatable ‘moon’ sculpture, in the landscape captured on video.Limbo-Land was filmed on a remote beach on the Scottish-English border near Berwick upon Tweed. The work was created as part of our work for the Berwick Gymnasium Fellowship, hosted by English Heritage and Supported by the Arts Council. Limbo-Land has been exhibited in numerous galleries both locally, regionally, nationally and internationally. The work echoes the melancholic atmosphere of the Northumberland expansive coastal landscapeand evokes a condition of ‘in-between-ness’ that is both physical and psychological. The films present Walker as an amateur astronaut caught between the land and the sky in a tragicomic attempt to harness the moon’s energies and reach the ultimate frontier. The point of letting go or holding on becomes postponed in a hypnotic moment that revels in its liminal state.The work invites audiences to explore that the idea of the boundary at which earth, sky and sea gain and lose their identity and in this act the individual viewer is invited to reconsider their own.
