Ilana Halperin has a longstanding interest in vulcanology and human relationships, and has made many visits to Iceland, Denmark, Greenland and Lapland. Halperin includes anecdotal information within her work in an attempt to fathom both chance encounters and geological incidents. By blending slow time and fast time, coincidences and physical changes, Halperin’s work echoes the ever-evolving landscape and the movement of her own life.
