2019 – 2020

Responding to the times we are living through, a fuller acquaintance with the archipelago invites the viewer to imagine into a co-created Lilliputian world that we are asked to navigate. As we look around, our observations and senses of the materiality these fossilized and fragile cast sculptures possess, gives way to our own imagination. This transformation may make it possible for us to see the objects as places and to mentally inhabit or visit them, possibly as islands. Through our curiosity and subjective engagement, questions of community, culture, environment and relationship arise. The now evident architecture and topology of the bleached forms suggests abandonment associated with a dystopian world.
