Tracing Shadows: Catching Sight of the Salt Cellar
Drawing, Photography, Text.
Current and ongoing work.
A project in which I am documenting the process of read(writ)ing my associative journey through To The Lighthouse, by Virginia Woolf.
This work in process enacts my disruptive devotion to reading Virginia Woolf’s novel. It follows my distractions and associations and visualises my circuitous route through the book. Drawings shift between representation and abstraction and respond to punt moments of reading. Objects in the book connect to equivalents in familiar domestic spaces. The voices of she. her, I and Lily entwine to question any sense of self.
I recently performed a fragment of the developing text work at the online Ligatures event. This was a collaborative event and will be broadcast between Soft-Shell Radio at Glasgow School of Art, oHPo Radio at Sheffield Hallam University, and Creative Writing at the University of Glasgow.
This photographic text work was part of the Salon for a Speculative Future group exhibition at Chisenhale Studios in London. It was included in the accompanying book, published by MA BIBLIOTHEQUE. Available to purchase here
