Originally, road maps, aerial views, topographic surveys, land use plans... in short, a whole iconography for locating, measuring and recording the territory. A whole codified materiality of the landscape. This is Cathryn Boch's favourite medium. Just as a painter squeezes tubes of colour onto his palette to obtain the desired tone, or as a sculptor takes pieces of the material he is working with to give shape to a form, the artist uses specific protocols that call in turn for tearing and assembling via a singular practice, sewing. The thread, in line or in thickness, allows him to elaborate the cartography of all sorts of worlds apart, new and improbable.
