Like a clap of thunder applies the verb ‘to unfurl’ to both a king size bed sheet in the photography studio and to the architectural framework within the gallery, aiming to capture an affect.
The bed sheet is spread out and caught by the flash in mid-air — in a state of making and unmaking; twisting, knotting, wrestling, forming, reforming, pouring, holding, releasing, open to the wind.
These emotional forms are then used to screen and be backdrops, to usher and parenthesize an event in space.
