All Our Laments, The Grundy Gallery, (Latex balloon, space putty, mdf and glass) 2017 Testing in ABS and ICW in collaboration with Garth Gratrix, 2017
This work explores boundaries, demarcations, and contested & liminal spaces, relative to landscape and the architectural/ urban environment, and how we mediate these spaces physically and psychologically - whilst simultaneously exploring the social, environmental & scientific issues concerning our relationship to such environments. The work alludes to uncertainties and anxieties of our time, evoking a sense of loss and lament, through temporal and ephemeral metamorphic.
The relationship between society and environment presents all sorts of political, social and philosophical enquiries, which encapsulates ambivalence, complicating our general position in the world against the backdrop of a ‘post truth’ era. A metaphorical weight, shadow and presence, interrupts, intrudes, and complicates - evoking uncertainty and ambiguity. We alternate between wanting and having, knowing and doubting, staying and leaving, creating a sense of suspension with prevailing uncertainty and doubt.
