Herd: Heard, 2016-2017
Installation and video projection
The installation Herd: Heard takes the viewer on a meditative, near-mystical journey. The theme of The Art of Joy is here expressed as a personal quest, an affirmation of identity rooted in the past but pointing to the future.
The artist would like to thank Adam Green, Kyle Bennett and George Bennett.
