Abstract:

This exploratory paper addresses the notion of “sense of place and
belonging” through visual re-presentation into history and the memory of people
who live in a place where they belong. The place is Pouch Cove, Newfoundland.
Taking a research creation approach and a qualitative interviewing mode of
inquiry, I collected stories about the connection between local residents and
Pouch Cove. Reflecting on the locals’ sense of place through their narratives, and
my own sense of place when immersing myself in the daily life of Pouch Cove, I
created a body of work for my thesis exhibition. The artworks presented invite
the viewers to experience “sense of place” and to interpret it through their own
perception. The subject under investigation, the place and memories and histories
of the people of Pouch Cove, has guided my research creation project and inspired
the work in the exhibition.
