Interface the Land reveals Kaoru Ryan Suzuki's intimate relationship with bodies of water and the complexities of gas, fire and movement, as he endeavours to form transcendant connections with the land. Through intentional acts he explores spiritual transformation in the context of ritual performance. The resulting work is framed in the Transcontintental Performance Series, a series that uses geographical sites spanning the North American continent, from Baffin Island in Nunavut to the Yukon, and from Haida Gwaii to the Island of Ayiti in the Caribbean Sea. Suzuki's methods of engagement include amplified water-listening meditations, aerial cinematography, dance and pilgrimage. His investigations are presented in the School of Art Gallery Special Collections Gallery in a multi-channel sound and video installation.
