Where Spirits Dwell
Lace curtain, wood, cabin, light and fabric
Exhibited at: 19th Sydney biennale
Curated by: Juliana Engberg

Its inspiration stems from cinematic mood-shots and a desire to create the sensation of a real-life freeze-frame. Capturing an absent breeze as it blows through the abandoned cabin and gently lifting its lace curtains, is much like evoking the presence of the supernatural. A mysterious wind creates the interval of a single moment. Here time stops all, like a spell that has been cast. The spectator adds time and as such becomes the moving camera. The wind announces change and seduction, while the cabin emits a haunting presence. It is at the site where souls reside between earth and the heavens, between place and time.
