The works amalgamated as Valediction suggest a narrative, a correspondence between fragmented elements, the viewer, and their own reflection. They describe distance and absence, all contained in the poetry of what could be read as a ‘letter’ home, a valediction, a farewell.
Unable to escape the tangible confines of the Vitrine, these elements pause in a state of suspension. The looping rhythm of the video work suggests an attempt at a melancholy release, a familiar shore to where someone is perhaps leaving from, or returning.
A small case for N –Regard is a small-scale, site-specific installation work developed for Platform’s Sample Space. Obscure, faintly familiar, white forms are piled; forms are arranged and contained in a field of white-painted display case. The work is an experiment, a sensitive inquiry into forms that remain incomplete and ambiguous, putting into question perception, understanding, affect and the place of description and language.
