To Take the Shape of the Container
Video Still

To Take the Shape of the Container is an exhibition that interweaves experiences of contemplative practice with loss and persistent mental imagery. From visions of death, to repetitive acts of quietude – visual dichotomies structure the work. Drawing inspiration from the mind’s perception after many days in deep silence, the installation emphasizes the acute awareness that is possible when the white noise of city life is absent. Grounded in corporeality, sound is utilized to both enhance and exaggerate physical awareness. We can hear and feel our own blood pumping, if we pay close attention.
