Walking forward, looking back is a practice-based project utilizing a journey through the landscape. Artist Carol Maurer walks from her ancestral home on the Eastern Shore of Maryland through Delaware to Chester County PA, collecting stories, photos, memories and objects along the route. Rediscovering histories – both true and false.
The journey began as a way to experientially confront her responsibility as a descendant of enslavers and slowly weaves into a meditation on the time, tempos, conversations and understandings walking can make space for.
Artworks and materials gathered will be exhibited at Street Road throughout Fall 2018. There will also be additional, scheduled walks in Chester County during this time.
Fellow wanderers are invited to join the walk from Maryland to Pennsylvania (below) and Carol's additional walks (left column) during the exhibition. Email to RSVP.
