Holding: Sites and Traces of Encounter

Presented within a darkened void, the boundaries between seeing and feeling become blurred. Inside the space can be found a wall of softly folded fabric, a collection of hand scaled sculptural objects, and a crumpled paper form resting on the floor like a huddled human figure.
A series of watercolour drawings serve as an invitation to the encounter within the darkened room. The gathered folds and pockets of fabric invite a sense of the potential of the void as a site of holding. The paper, cloth and wax objects were formed with and within the artist’s hands. As the softened wax cooled, her gestures were captured. Through these encounters, of touch, holding, shaping and enveloping, there remains a presence - the traces and residues of the other.
