The Between

My intention is to transport viewers to a fictional timeless space. In essence, to transport them to The Between - a place that explores different planes of existence and the passage through life to death. There are elements that are delicate, luminous and ethereal, symbolic now that their function as garments have been removed. The carpets stand in apparent contrast, rich artifacts made dense by the embedded with histories of past lives. Voices emerge and fade and through them, past, present and future co-exist revealing the complexities of “being”.
