Inside/outside

imageThe theme of inside/ outside has been a constant theme in my practice. I have begun experimenting with the spiral form as a way of exploring this theme. Often internal spaces are seen as private spaces that are an extension of the self. This space is not neutral and not shared with others; there is a relationship between the sense of self and actual physical privacy.

Mikhail Bakhtin has described the relationship of the self with the other, with the outside, as a situation that is always on the border, in which the interior and the exterior are in a constant process of realisation.

“Man has no internal sovereign territory, he is all and always on the boundary; looking within himself.”
