Suspended


This exhibition is a space and time for dwelling on mortality, loss and cycles of rebirth.

Philippa Jones’ Suspended is an immersive installation consisting of large drawings and paintings, a celestial sculpture featuring thousands of cast orbs containing fragments of plants and animals, and interactive technology that gives viewers a unique perspective on the cycles of life.

Time is pulled in strange directions, verging on the infinite or freezing in a never-ending instant – suspended – and it is in these moments outside of the flow of time that Jones gives the viewer a special control of reality. It is a space to reconnect to the Earth, reckoning with an ecological grief and detachment from Nature and the natural, while trying to understand and question our emotional responses to physical inevitabilities.

A suspension never lasts forever; eventually, it all must end.
