This installation began life in mid February 2014 as part of the Encounters Exhibition for Brent Artist's Resource at The BAR Gallery Unit 4-5 Queens Parade, Willesden Green, London. The work started in one corner of the gallery and initially measured just 300 x 200 cm.
From 29th March -10th April 2014 a three week residency followed during which Intense threading continued and the installation grew allowing significant extension
to include the front windows and other walls of the 550 x 740cm space. The final installation consumed
about 16km of ink and 3.5 km of cerise coloured recycled linen thread. These threads were used to
explore the technique, to trace intuitive pathways, following energy planes eventually
constructing an intruiging threaded installation. The artist was thwarted from
achieving her ultimate goal which would have been to completely fill
the entire space.Logistic requirements made it necessary to
retain the central circulation space and the time limits
precluded ultimate completion.
phase was a serious
attempt to pursue a completely
intuitive response - a physical
reaction to the perceived limits of
my own surroundings. It was literally a bodily
expression of a journey to the edge of my own
limits of existence - the limits of physical endurance
and patience- the limits of living in an ever crowded metropolis.
I tried to push the media - as far as I could take it - right over the edge
and back again if possible. It was an abuse of the concept of the line and as such explored
the boundaries of a (confined) space contained (? within) what I was trying to point to beyond.’
