Francesca Dubrock was born and raised in Alaska and has been traveling the world since she turned eighteen. As a result, much of her work deals with memory, dislocation, and unfulfilled desire.
In his works, the landscape is transformed into a stage where real and imaginary events come together, creating a world of unreality in which the idea of returning is impossible.
The Landscapes Project is based on my own literary memories and stories, photographs of explorers, colonizers, and exiles; to examine the idea of being lost or out of place, looking for something that has been left behind or beyond my reach. I am interested in the role of cultural memory in dealing with national traumas, such as conquest, political violence, exile and the change of social identities.
