Work in Progress Exhibition

This piece is about questioning the use and perception of space, the public and the private, the personal and the impersonal.

It is composed of two site based installations. The first one took place in Richmond Park, where by bringing elements that evoked personal use and private property as well as the idea of warmth and personal identity, I intended to accentuate the uses of public spaces as extensions of our personal space. The need to belong to a place, a territory.

The second one was in at the Crypt Gallery. Here I brought some of the branches I found during the first installation, I wanted to bring the out-door indoors and with this underline the levels of public and accessibility. The branches were suspended and joined only by their shadows which were mimicked with soil, a trail that reminded where they came from, what they are no longer. Dead and alive, present and absent, past and present. time and space.
