This body of work stems from a residency Le Gear undertook in the Arctic waters of Svalbard in 2012 where she contemplated the micro and macro forces of ice in the retreating ice flows. Le Gear further explores the potentiality of ice in terms of ‘water remedies’ resulting from fieldwork investigations of the north Leitrim landscape. The contradiction of a remedy made from water and diluted with itself presents interesting questions around the uses and permutations of a landscape whose energy-fields mediate and co-exist with the human body.
