Tara Nicholson incorporates photography and video to investigate remote and often disputed territories. The notion of modern-day pilgrimage has been repeated throughout her large-scale projects for the past five years to invite reflection on the desire to retreat and escape. Nicholson has exhibited and attended residencies internationally and since 2010 has taught sessionally at the University of Victoria. In 2013 Nicholson was invited to be the artist in residence at the Künstlerhaus Dortmund in Germany where she completed a summer residency and solo exhibition. Nicholson has received support from the BC Arts Council and Canada Council and this summer will be traveling to Greenland to produce a new body of work exploring climate change research in the Arctic.
