I cannot contain my excitement. I cannot measure my gratitude.
Sofia, Bulgaria awaits me and in these days leading up to jetting off I am a mixture of nerves, impatience and ebullient bubbles, like a shaken up bottle of Bollinger! World Of Co is hosting me as a resident artist for the month of May, 2018. I will be one of 5 artists in residence and the time will end with my first international exhibition.
The work I am creating there will address the theme Absence is present. The purpose of the work is to provide a ritualistic guidelines for the emotive journey that grief is. The work will be presented in printed photographs and video.
It is a natural continuation from the series 'We see as we are'. I feel this theme is not exhausted yet, and I wonder if it ever will be. Death, Absence and Presence. It is natures way; yet we continue to feel deeply and are affected long term.
I will be here in my tiny blogosphere sharing behind the scenes images of the process, of the residency and the experience. Words, realisations and revelations that come as a landslide during such an intensive time.
