A series created for the Bonavista Biennale 2019 “FLOE”.

These corks were used in the east coast fishery and then discarded with the advent of plastics.

I tie these artefacts to the Portuguese fishermen that fished the Grand Banks of Newfoundland for hundreds of years before the collapse of the Cod in the 1990’s and may have brought cork to trade with them.
