.fallen.

“small and slightly curious items”

“being asked to explain again. refer to the fallen.

pick up

collect the fallen.

i told her it was about dead soldjers.

it feels natural, without the need to explain. to verbalize the fallen”.

 

Working with found items, the work has been investigating collections, wunderkammer, cabinets of curiosity.

The process entails museum visits, research, writing and producing imagery, refined into a personal statement on my findings.

Objects, manipulated, covered, layered, the issues not hidden.

Images of the everyday,  past and present.

“it is a long time since the sun shone in long and low like that.   does this mean it is spring now?        i did not know you, yet when i saw that you were gone too,                                         i felt sadly.

  i stood and looked at the blackthorn trees. black bird sings early, the same bird calls late”
