Wayfinding; entanglements in matter and place Jan Hogan is an artist and academic specializing in notions of place, interweaving material traces with memory. Wayfinding is about her recent negotiations with island life in Tasmania. It is a proposition about engaging in processes of critical making to think through the fluidity of place and the constant becoming of identity. Through relocating around many sites in Australia, including remote areas such as Kununurra and Uluru, Jan researches how environments have agency in the development of natural and cultural systems. In negotiating different terrains Jan has set up a site-responsive practice that involves immersion in a site, engaging in long term drawing projects that accumulate knowledge. Jan is currently Head of the Art School, University of Tasmania and coordinator of Printmaking. She has an exhibition of prints and artists books at Craft ACT opening 16th May, 2019.
