May Hands, solo exhibition
Opening Friday 6th September from 6.30 - 8pm
06.09.19 - 05.10.19
For her first solo exhibition at White Crypt, May Hands’ work will reflect upon the September equinox as we transition from late Summer into early Autumn. From the last of the Summer sun with the days getting shorter and the sun sinking lower in the sky, to the crisp leaves turning amber as they dry and wither. These natural phenomena remind us of the transient quality of life and hint at the need to prepare for winter, to withdraw and turn inward just as nature at this time of the year rests and waits so that it may begin the cycle of seasons again anew.
The exhibition aims to engage the spectator and incite feelings of longing and nostalgia through an immersive installation of sculpture, video and photography. Playing with the concept of a crypt as a unique site of transformation in nature’s cycle of life and death, Hands’ exhibition will conjure a heightened sense of ecological awareness, whilst also encouraging recognition of our place in the world and our role within it.
