As The Dust Settles
In this exhibition I would like to explore our wish to achieve goals, whatever they may be. Often as a result of unconscious manipulation, we find ourselves suppressing everything else that comes in the way, including our own ‘true’ desires. The works are presented as a series of four pieces, created from a collage of photos shot for a Le Salon titled event ‘As The Dust Settles’ which had the theme of dance.
The theme of desires is central to the work, as the images relate the narrative from the unconscious’ point of view. Starting from a dark piece entitled ‘Alone’, it then progresses to ‘Within Self’ where the dancer cannot find a way out, despite trying in vain. In ‘Distant yet Closer Than Hands & Feet’ the dancer intuits a possible way out, hence culminating in ‘Unity’ where the bridge is overcome.
A special thanks goes to Lynne Salamone Reynaud for helping with the inspiration and braving the cold February evening winds!
The images can be seen at the Villa Bologna gift shop in Attard (next to back entrance of San Anton Gardens).
