Praying Hands Candle

Bone Tear (2011)

 

Bone Tear was installed in a former chapel for women inmates in a prison in Sydney. I produced a sculpture based on one image from the Daily Drawing Series alongside a candle sculpture in the form of praying hands. The candles were burning during the whole exhibition period. In addition, Gregorian chant, sung by priests, was played on a loop. 

 

뼈눈물 (2012)

 

이 작품은 과거 시드니에 존재 했던 여성 전용 감옥의 교회에서 전시 되었다. 기도하는 손 모양을 한 양초 조각과 함께 전시되었던 이 작품은 매일 드로잉 시리즈의 한 이미지를 바탕으로 제작되었고, 전시 장소에 수도사들이 부른 그레고리안 성가가 반복되어 재생 되도록 한 후 설치 되었다.
