Heavy as a Cloud
MetadataShow full item record
Heavy as a Cloud is a collection of phenomena that alludes to the fragility and transience of life; clouds drifting away, waves rolling in, flowers fading in the sun, a lingering fragrance, and crumbling sandcastles. Using photographic and sculptural mediums, this exhibition considers human experiences such grief and memory, mediated through everyday objects and elements of nature, to represent states of impermanence. Exploring how grief can be contained within objects and photographs, but also felt in the world around us, this work investigates some of the ways in which we contain loss. Using ephemeral themes and materials, the work asks the questions: How do you hold something that doesn’t exist? And how will we be remembered after we die? This work resides in a place of desire or longing to hold things that cannot be held, to fix a moment that is gone, to make physical things out of the intangible.
