Built with Indexhibita
My methodology of working as a visual artist offers the viewer an opportunity for a new understanding of the material world, presented through the element of water. My curiosity about the nature of water and it’s potency for story, is based on a deepening understanding of it’s scientific and homeopathic properties, combined with in situ observation in challenging physical environments.
I explored the potential of one drop of water while on residency at Oberpfälzer
Künstlerhaus in Schwandorf, exploring the waters of the river naab; the water remedies given to the river and the remedy that came from the river. The constant movement of the water, its undercurrents and flow forms are considered through a drop in a macro situation. In the exhibition I wish to take the viewer on a fantastic voyage through water, showing us a hidden universe teeming with physical activity. In audio recordings I wish to present the submerged underwater landscapes over layered with the meaning of the water remedy from the various sites of field investigations. There is an immense density of civilisation here, layer upon layer, communicated through the river naab. The exhibition will consist of large multi screen video installations.
