Holy Souls (Bath)
alldaybreakfast installation, Fringe arts Bath, 2014
Steps lead down to a waiting room with chairs and furniture shrouded in plastic sheeting; a kind of limbo under construction, or the scene of a crime. Lit by low, blue light, this waiting space is like an airport lounge on the way to nowhere. Piped elevator music, an echoing Bossa Nova, endlessly repeats. Three doors lead out of this space - but which one is the right one to enter?
Holy Souls is a meditation on the transience of existence. The installation doesn’t confine itself to a single narrative. The texts, images and objects become part of the fabric of the building. Clues point to something having happened here or something about to happen.
