Part I: Reflection

Rope, wood plank, tin container, soil, thorn branches


In an abandoned house on the outskirts of hilly Shatana, a lonely swing and an outdoor plant in a room. The emptiness, from people, creates an air of serenity. Swinging in silence with a glimpse to the outside and a ray of sunshine peeking in.



Part II: Deflection

Reflective wallpaper, wooden boards


On the lower wall of the same space, a shiny surface that allows the viewer to experience a distorted reflection of themselves and the landscape around them. Together the installations compound the idea of placing objects in an unfitting context and place, or typically so.
