Anna Daedalus, Enfolded
Anna Daedalus’s Enfolded series employs folding, sculpting and re-photographing to mimic the sheltering concavity of riparian hollows, wetland and woodland. It responds to the enveloping plenitude and multiplicity of the living world.
“Look at these roots, these bushes. Did you ever wonder about plants—feeling, being aware, even perceiving? The trees, this beechnut—they’re in no hurry, while we rush around and speak in platitudes. It’s because we don’t trust our inner natures. There’s all this doubt, haste—lack of time to stop and think.”
-From Andrei Tarkovsky’s 1975 film, The Mirror.
