lament: candles & compost (2006)
…full of striking images…shadowplay and puppetry were absorbingly innovative…The Age
…startling work that is at once confronting and yet comforting…Inpress
lament is a meditation on transubstantiation.
On the interdependence of body, spirit, soil and sky.
On the transience of life and the regenerative qualities of death.
On resurrection through decomposition.
