The Canary and The Hammer is a complex, international account, detailing the inherent human reverence of gold and its affair in the ruthless endeavour of progress. Photographed across four years and four continents, the work connects seemingly disparate issues and aesthetics through a mix of stills, moving images and archival materials, sourced from both collections in libraries and online.

Much of the series investigates Man’s abstract but innate desire to occupy territory. From the initial arrival of English colonisers in Jamestown, to the latest space-technologies developed by NASA, Barnard shows how cartography, geographic rendering and photography serve a speculative function for colonial impulse and the acquisition of wealth. Reflecting on these desires, the work displays a wide array of visual and photographic approaches from photoetching to three-dimensional digital landscapes.
