Accenda la luce, nasce lombra (2020/21)
Composite wall piece consisting of 72 sections with embossed
and printed lettering using letterpress type and book binding
of connectivity and nostalgia for past encounters and associations
can lead to feelings of isolation and vulnerability. At the
same time, shared life experiences creates a new social equality
that connects us even though were kept apart.
lapse video Desert Rose is from a series
I created for my exhibition Earth is Calling at
the Crypt just over a year ago. Im sharing as I think
its appropriate for these times.
My fascination with lichens and algae goes back many years.
Rose of Jericho (Selaginella lepidophylla) grows in the Mexican
desert and is known as a 'resurrection plant' due to its ability
to survive desiccation.
The video which explores ideas of evolution, sustainability,
preservation and survival in difficult circumstances, combines
two contradictory elements relating to the climate change debate
- ice and desert. I'm also looking at notions of aesthetics
and fragility - beauty both in terms of its ability to mask
and mislead, and its power to persuade and promote ideas in
a positive way.
