For the last several years, Lucinda Bliss’ creative work has sprung from the intersection of her life as an artist, academic, and runner. Her project, Tracking the Border, for which she received a 2016 Kindling Grant from the Warhol Foundation, supported a year-long inquiry into the 611 miles that make up the Maine-Canada border. The project included interviews with a Passamaquoddy Council member, a Maine geologist, a former border patrol officer, and a forester, among others, and the stories and perspectives that emerged from these conversations led her to question assumptions about the nature of borders that had far-reaching and personal implications. Exploring remote areas of the border, learning about the history of the land, experiencing its boundaries physically—these navigations led her to an unexpected body of work that draws on artistic precedents like Ana Mendieta and Richard Long. In her talk, she will expand on these connections, and illuminate how a project that was inspired by global politics linked those concerns to personal questions about gender and power.
