EARTHBOUND: a story of life, death, faith, and the earth. A story of being human, of being earth bound.
Traditional gallery style hanging is not for me and this body of work. In nature beauty isn’t always right there at your eye line; you have to look up, down, under, and through. I’ve hung some of this work really high, and on an adjoining wall there’s work low down, almost on the floor, so you have to stoop to view it.
It’s okay to break gallery conventions (if the gallery allows it). I’m mindful of where those traditions come from (hint: not women) & how I can play a part in breaking the legacy. The gallery model is under pressure & a forward thinking space (like this one) will recognise that change is necessary for survival. Just as in nature.
