The works shown in this exhibiton at @ingerb__ in Denmark consider Metempsychosis or transmigration. A concept we see in many cultures including the Norse who believe one’s Hugr would pass into the body of a newborn relative while one’s Hamingja continued on in the family at large and our Fylgja which ceases to exist at the person’s death.
Every fibre of my being features specially made items along with pieces created during my residency in Shinning Cliff Woods and a series of turned yew boxes by Patrick Ryan. All the works are made from foraged materials, before being ‘processed’ using specially made stoves, stills, milling devices…lathes and grinders.
A linen flag dipped dyed in carbon and salt.
7 turned lidded boxes made of Yew.
5 nesting baskets made of Scotch Pine needles.
An amount of Oak charcoal.
A bottle of Indian ink made from ground charcoal.
Willow bark rope.
Wood pulp and charcoal paper and finally some freshly picked acorns.
