Traces

by Ledelle Moe

18 – 27 September 2014

 

Ledelle Moe’s monumental cement and steel sculptures

situate the viewer in a preternatural relationship to her

subjects due to scale and by shifting the conventional axis

of the form. In this way her work provokes ontological

and phenomenological questions about human

relationships to nature, to the spaces we occupy and the

markers/monuments/memorials we leave behind. Moe’s

central installation, featuring two sizeable recumbent

birds, recalls the mythology of the sunbird and the

ancient form of the sarchophagus thus resonating with

contrasting motifs found in nature such as birth and

death, light and dark, the solid and the ephemeral.
