Let It Breathe


Commissioned by 'a space' arts

92 Old Northam Road, Southampton, SO14 0PB

7th January - 13th March 2022


Our lungs are two organs inside our chest filling with air as we breathe in. However, the most important function of the lungs is to carry movements of mind, speech, and body.


Referring to personal experience of lung surgeries during the lockdowns – when the illness had painstakingly shifted my life – this display meditates on a chance as a conductor that orchestrates our encounter of the world. “Where the lung is like a horse, and the mind is the rider if there is something wrong with the horse the rider will not be able to ride properly” (Have Carel, 2016). I hope to break down the everyday experience of space and create a disorientated environment, moving away from our atomised perception of the world.


Imagining the Hidden Wardrobe as a creature with a unique system of organs, my new immersive exhibition sees lung-like sculptures fill the exhibition space, representing the significance of this vital organ and its functions whilst exploring the phenomenology of spatial perception.
