Inhere, 2014 and Lily, 2014
site specific work
Inhere and Lily were part of exhibition entitled Dwell at St. Anne’s Church, in partnership with loop Gallery, September 7 to 27, 2014
Dwell celebrated St. Anne, the mother of Mary, and grandmother of Jesus and the themes of space, place, and neighbourhood.
Inhere presents a bed constructed from found pallets and stacked with straw. Set adjacent, and in contrast to, the splendour of the altar at St. Anne’s Church, Inhere modestly recalls the story of Mary seeking a shelter in which to give birth to Jesus. The bed is a reminder that the church offers refuge for the body as well as the soul.
