Death is no easy matter to understand; it remains the most puzzling conundrum of them all. ‘Recollect’ focuses on the relationship with our deceased – the search for understanding, for succor, for acknowledgment of our grief and the means to develop continuing bonds with our dead.
The images capture the impermanence of the dead’s physicality, highlighting their presence through their absence. ‘Recollect’ lingers on the roles played by temporality, animism and spirituality.
