Fon Uachdar/ Beneath the Surface 

In this series of drawings MacLeod explores notions of deep time, the more-than-human, bodily memory, identity and fidelity to place. Nuanced layers of memory trapped inside her body, adrift and fragmented finally begin to pour out. Ghostly beings ebb and flow in symbiosis, forming one continuous line. Rocks, minerals, sea salt, lichens and tree sap gathered from specific landscapes in which MacLeod defined herself by, are used to draw and map the beginnings of the process of letting these memories and places go.
