‘Memento Mori’: Reminder of our death. Using the body as a ‘site’ I have explored a variety of responses to this complex emotive issue. Autobiographical in nature, I examine the conflicting interplay between reality, subjectivity, and imagination in response to death. The pieces on show evoke ideas of fragility, decay, and mortality. Made from selected found-materials/objects/images – The process of construction, overlapping, layering, and de-construction, give rise to ambiguities, glimpses, fragmentary clues a way of putting shape on the incomprehensible. What is revealed is a dialogue with a creative process that allows ideas to stay in a state of flux, feeding one discovery or surprise into another. The process of searching allows the imagination to find the forms, and examine and control them in a battle of will over chance and accident. Several narratives are interwoven. Several meanings are suggested simultaneously preventing any one interpretation: meaning is only resolved by the viewer. The gallery-space offers a collecting point for this laboratory of ideas – a ‘cabinet of curiosities’ – a poetic, response to the anxiety of heart, soul, and mind in, the face of loss. Free Event
