Resonating from the Past

Molded, carved and hand built unfired porcelain clay. Clay dust created from carving.

My clinical placement was a school. The bells that used to chime the repeated sequences of time to begin, move and stop were displayed in the corridor. The bells were lined up resonating a past religious educational and therapeutic institution that still exists through a contemporary hierarchical system.

My work explores the role and positioning of the art psychotherapist in the clinical and wider cultural sphere. The bell handles represent the interpersonal relationships of individuals within a group of an institution, a family, a socio-politicalpower system. the interplay of past, present and potential future events resonates between the client and therapist. the material is fragile, with the potential to change shape together through a harmonious resonance.
