Visit the gallery site here: Fourth Wall at Vox Populi
To cap our run as guest curators of Vox Populi’s Fourth Wall space, we present Lagan, an installation work combining resonant porcelain sound tubes, video, and lighting.
Lagan is a nautical term for cargo thrown from a ship and marked with a buoy, which rests on the sea floor waiting to be reclaimed. Even memories can be purposely submerged, their location saved, to be salvaged later. In the intervening period (has it been months? years? a lifetime?) they have been transformed, just as jettisoned cargo has attracted corals, lush seaweed, and colorful fish.
In creating Lagan, we find ourselves returning to deeply-rooted techniques and images of distant friends and places left behind, viewing and hearing them as they are in the process of submerging, transforming, and surfacing again with new layers of meaning and beauty.
