"I propose to call the rites of separation from a previous world, pre-liminal rites; those executed during the transitional stage, liminal (or threshold) rites; and the ceremonies of incorporation into the new world, post-liminal rites". Victor W. Turner (1976) The Forest of Symbols In this seminal essay, 'Betwixt and Between: The Liminal Period in Rites of Passage', the anthropologist Victor W. Turner describes his understanding of the transient 'state' of being, following his study of life with the Ndembu tribe in Zambia. The shifts from adolescence to adulthood or life to death are set out in what he describes as 'rites of passage'. I recognise this in my work that is a series of personal interpretations using the concept of the liminal, which has also been influenced by the Italian poet Eugenio Montale. His hermetic style of writing is directly reflected in the nature and content of my images.
