Printed paper, waxed cotton thread
The printed score of Handel’s Hallelujah Chorus was ‘deconstructed’ into hundreds of curling paper strips and suspended from the ceiling on fine black threads. They delineated an insubstantial conical form suggestive of a Christmas tree hovering above the gallery floor. The flurry of falling notes and cascading chords constantly swayed and rustled in a delicate poetic evocation of this inspiring music.
Exhibited in ‘Tree’, a group show at Wyndham Art Gallery, Werribee, December 2012
