South of Cancer, Steven Nestor



South of Cancer is a topographical narrative in a non-specified location below the Tropic of Cancer. It is an environment of emergence and formation where knowledge of both the self and the physical is rendered imprecise or vague. It is a search for traces of something that defies mapping and understanding.The actual location is the archipelago of Cabo Verde, but that is neither explicitly referenced nor of core importance.

Nestor consciously avoided most literary and visual research so as to concentrate on as reflexive and as unguided a response as possible, free from the gaze and obligations of the romantic traveller in the domain of the exotic. His resulting images are of detachment and the erosion or masking of structures and surfaces. Through rough delineations Nestor’s work attempts to find a navigable constellation into a process of re-mapping pre-charted lands.
