The Hangmen

2020

During the pandemic there has been an experience of suspended animation as we step between worlds hovering between a sensory perspective and an online virtual reality. The bats hung in mercurial forms represent the upside down, a moment of reflection and a symbol of sacrifice, of dormancy as we enter a liminal space. The body captured in a 2D digital collage, suspended in a funeral field of daisies as she is held between the body and the flattened cut out pixels. This work is a virtual surrender to this moment.
