Project Description

The work in Blind Faith draws inspiration from the traces of wallpaper left clinging to the walls of recently demolished buildings, and the way in which they provide us with an intimate glimpse of the past. Now exposed to the passer-by, these fragments are not only an indication of the time and tastes of their inhabitants, but become a metaphor for memory and a reminder of our own mortality. These concepts are developed further by incorporating new elements, including a cast-glass book and a “travel reliquary”: a companion piece containing cast-glass pomegranates printed with family photos.
