Exhibition Description

‘Nights as Inexorable as the Sea’ considers the quirky and unpredictable nature of dreams and memories. Asleep - existing in that liminal space – situations confront me that I can’t quite explain, often fraught with absurdities and illogical occurrences. I’ve always been amazed when friends recount intricate details and entire storylines of their dreams while mine remain in shards – minute fragments of what was. Was it a dream, or was it a previously forgotten memory seeping through to my conscious mind? Due to the ephemeral nature of both memory and dreams, these images are in tins – to simulate the memory boxes in which people store their family photographs and mementos.
