Encounter Event
brings closer the barbaric cruelty and immense struggles suffered by those who seem far away and questions our vulnerability and the way we live our lives in the face of the immense and impending threats of our time. It shows our inextricable connectedness through everything as we watch earthworms retreat into the organic matter, upon which we all depend for our ultimate survival.

In ‘Cavern’ a ritualistic scene is encountered, the everyday world is separated from a sacred space. Entering the uncanny darkness we return to the source, to a place of primal power and come face to face with our own mortality and origin. The work does not offer closure or codification, but rather a merging of an imaginative with a physical space.

There is a strong psychological undercurrent in this work, we feel the pull of familial bonds, traces of memory and the order of time. All these elements combine to weave a portrait of the turf cutter who rhythmically continues his task which ordinarily mundane, becomes a thing of ritual beauty.
