‘Life’, is an installation constructed for a collaborative exhibition titled ‘Experiri’ with Lindsay Elise Jolly at Nunnsyard Gallery, Norwich. It asks the viewer to consider the ladder as a suggestion of movement, both and down and the notion of life. Do we consider moving up or down as life passes? The ladders are only connected at the top, which may suggest the start or entry point, and float freely downwards. the mirror below reflects and extends the ladder’s journey though leaves the ladders disconnected.
The reflection captures the ladders and the sky, though it is now below, turning and questioning the concept of direction and the notion of ‘above’.
