Spellbound: Magic,Ritual & Witchcraft

31 August 2018 - 6 January 2019

I am exhibiting my Instillation 'Concealed Shield' in the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford ' Spellbound: Magic, Ritual & Witchcraft'. The Instillation consists of a large blown Glass Heart suspended in a blacked out space. It is illuminated by red laser diodes that create moving shadows on the surrounding walls. Sounds of hidden creatures also permeate the space.

It represents found pierced hearts hidden up chimneys, placed there by the inhabitants to protect the home from evil forces.

See my short film of making the heart with Brodie Nairn of Glasstorm in Tain. https://vimeo.com/281269896
