Here's Water and Also a Rock
Magdalene's recent project, 'Here's Water and Also a Rock', focuses on the unconscious rather than the conscious; the hidden rather than the apparent. She particularly seeks things that are concealed and detached from the world; fragmented and fluid; like in the state of dreaming. Her latest research explores the subject of dreams in relation to water. Water is like a mirror. Yet, its reflection is never a simulacrum. Water creates its own unique eye-deceiving constellations of colour; illusions. Water is also a versatile element that is subject to constant change. It can be tangible or intangible; solid or fluid; visible or invisible. Its own state can be a visual deception. Magdalene's project merges dreams and water in a coherent photographic and audio-visual work that attempts to capture contrasting, unpredictable and often deceiving forms.
