Ablution, from The Barking Wall
I remember as a kid I used to cover my face with my hands, and peek at the world through my fingers. I could see the world, but the world couldn't see me. Nowadays, I find myself assimilating with the hybrid, a creature I share a betwixt nature with, for we are both between two worlds — having multiple origins — and demand our own realm, such as a Gothic castle, a tomb or limbo to serve as a haven. I seek to create a peace with a conflict of belonging. The Barking Wall serves as a vault; a collection of visual memories that cross-pollinate with lived experience and extended history (of past generations, oral tradition and cinema), and spawn new hybrid moments. Applied layer after layer, these confused memories let go of specific places and time and drift like phantoms, roaming free through the fields of imagination, meeting the visitor half-way, and letting one create their own narrative.
