Opening 3.8. 17-19. Welcome!
Impenetrable fort -exhibition deal with shelter, protection and revealing. It has collection of ceramic hedge, emotional lumps made of recycled leather and my fragmented ideas painted on canvas.I am looking for a form for things that are perceived as difficult and painful. Shame sets limits, fear needs protection, humiliation needs hiding, and grief overwhelmed. It’s hard to talk about feelings and it’s easiest for me to deal with them through my works.
