Homelight

Christchurch Art Gallery, 2005

Curated by Felicity Milburn, Curator, Contemporary Art, CAG

 

‘and last is the light
filtered through ice,
seepage
in the walls
of a primal
shelter:
invasive and defining,
lucent,
a blue
watermark,
a survival:

so build us a home of it,
make it soil; the light
of home,
‘HOMELIGHT’
a cold pressing
onto paper
onto clay
shaped,
fired.’
