Floor-wall-Installations, 1993
No more fuel Fishing Shells of Reality Umbilical Cord
The sacred ambience of the nineteenth century industrial building [of the Eastway Laundry] seems to have left its mark on the works created there. Some of them have an curious solemnity, an aura of altar or reliquary. Pieces placed in dialogue on the wall and the floor representing archetypal symbols of heaven and earth, become landscapes of the spirit, a very personal cosmogony. Books turn up again, this time as carriers of energy from cultures captured in the written word. As if via umbilical cord, energy streams flow back and forth between them and other objects.
