SHADOW WEAVE 11, WEST PROJECT SPACE, 2015
Hope Chest is a collection of mismatched drawers. Littered throughout are object remnants – sculpted moths in various stages of decay, rusty specimen pins, fragments of wings and legs – alongside dried plants, bark, old wallpaper, and dust. Hope Chest exists in a twilight world where the real and the imaginary slip past each other and merge, where time slows down and expands, light fades, and shadows envelop us.
'Shadow Weave II is a multi-dimensional phenomenon, eliciting various, distinct and interwoven experiences, where each artist draws new dimensions from the shadows specific to their own practice. An installation of sculptural objects, paper cuts, projections and photographs, the exhibition is immersive and experimental and explores the intersection between transient new media and tangible art forms.'
