Question: Tell me about “Where Ever You Are”
As children we would innately create spaces to hide from monsters, our fears and weave chambers to protect ourselves from harm, both real and imagined. We instinctively hide, and even have games all about crawling into dark niches, racing hearts, hushed breathing and waiting for the right moment to come back into the light. When child’s play becomes adult compulsion, we revert to our pure selves and our instinctive fight or flight mentality. After a dark and scary period in our history, Wherever you are invites everyone to come out of their forts, their crevasses, their shadows into the light, hopeful for a brighter day. This piece is one part of a larger installation idea where there are various safe spaces from which to come back into the light of day.
