It’ll All End in Tears
Porcelain, tissues and nylon string, Dimensions variable
A physical representation of both the residues of grief and its enactment.
Its keeper, a bag, not able to contain this emotion anymore floods the space with
temporary vignettes in the form of ‘tissues that are wept into’.
When enough distance, healing and time has elapsed the tissues touch the ground, burn and dissipate.
The tissues aesthetic and form are evoked by my memory of a swarm of butterflies that I watched approach, envelope and pass over me before they continued downstream whilst I walked up a rocky, tree and shrub covered stream one afternoon on an island in Asia.
