Premiere:

Z Space, San Francisco

I am intrigued by how we leave what we know and navigate the unknown—when your things, your thoughts, that have been with you fall away. Close the Door Slowly traces a personal journey for me; how does one leave something dear? How do we confront, absorb, accept situations that propel us into a sphere without guideposts? And is there some information right there that we don’t see that sheds light?

I began Close the Door Slowly with the image of charting a course, finding the kernel of what matters and moving forwards. The installation environment is an old study—desk, books, lamp, chair, stool—a place for solitude, imbued with the lives of its’ past inhabitants, where imagination and thoughts unfold. The objects embody the memories, obstacles, supports we carry with us through our lives. Until we let go.  .
