Description

On the 21st June 2019 at 4:43am the sun rose on the Summer Solstice, commencing at 51.5050185, 0.0777211 on the edge of the Thames. This artwork was a de/constructive process; sculpting the physical Being, intangible Self/s and the foundation of a space that would hold a monochromatic cross of bones. This installation was not a crucifix but rather mapped path/s of psychogenesis; an intersection held somewhere between purgatory and peacefulness. Surveying boundaries, we moved through “CHTHONIC’s” external/internal environments, acknowledging the reciprocal intervention that occurs between both.
