Clare Benson, The Shepherd’s Daughter
My work is deeply rooted in my family history. After the death of my mother when I was eleven years old, I became increasingly curious about notions of family, memory, and mortality. I was raised by my father: an avid hunter, archery champion, and former hunting guide in the Alaskan wilderness. Growing up amidst the hunting culture of northern Michigan, I learned to see hunting as a tradition that ties humans to the natural world; a ritual that speaks to notions of mortality and the interconnectedness of life within a larger system. Before my father, my grandmother was a hunter and before that my great-grandmother, and long before that the stars made up constellations that told stories of the greatest hunts. In my work, the nuances of hunting and the rugged northern landscape of my childhood are woven with narratives of genealogy and gender, memory and mythology, time and space.
