A large format black and white print of a cave serves as the entry point into the work 'Lethe'. Ordinary objects appear re-composed in abstracted fragments when taken into the studio, as though they were consolidating themselves as temporary remnants. Navigating between the stage and the encountered, a series of 'shipwrecks' echo the memory of the collision between absence and presence, between 'lethe' - 'forgetfulness' and 'oblivion' - and 'aletheia' - 'disclosure' or 'truth'. Similar to the writings of Anne Carson, this work uses mythology, personal experience, dream and fiction in order to create a new way of myth telling. Through images and text 'Lethe' delves into that which is concealed or forgotten.
