Filmed throughout 2016, Parker’s short film is a hybrid form of landscape cinema and self-portraiture through place, which observes meteorological phenomena and the natural world. On Location is part of Parker’s research project responding to Annabel Nicolson’s artist’s book, Escaping Notice (1977). The film centres on an unnamed hollow way that leads to the remote farmhouse featured in Nicolson’s book. Sensitive to the changes caused by the seasons, Parker captures the differences in temperature, wind, light and shade, colour and pattern, sound, flora and fauna; and accompanies the delicate footage with field recordings from the sunken lane in rural mid-Devon.
