Marion Ferguson lives and works in Glasgow, Scotland. Ferguson’s work examines the landscape tradition via printmaking. The centred position of the viewer is blocked in her installed work, refusing to give her/him a privileged position on order to survey the sublime spectacle. As post-humanist non/spaces, her work uses various print techniques to record a terrain, using the rectilinear form of the soft ground etching process to record the ground under her feet. She then turns this foreground into midground/figure by printing or floating it over large transparent topographies, blocking her own and the viewers centred viewing position. Both subject and object (the landscape) are put in process; neither are finally knowable - yet are there.
