“…In Civil, Nautical, Astronomical (2014-2015) a fixed camera records a densely wooded scene at twilight, filmed from a vantage-point located high up above the forest floor in the canopy. Safely positioned in their hide, the artist and a hunter wait for the arrival of a stag. Close to dusk, and following a sustained period of waiting a single shot rips through the wood. The viewer is left with no certainty of whether the game has been hit. The hunter is licensed to cull a number of animals each year to control the population of deer, and to limit the damage to the tree bark, denting the profits of the wood’s owners…” -taken from the text for the exhibition “graft” by Nicola Oxley and Nicholas de Oliviera
