Obscure Alchemy, 2011-2022 (ongoing), is an expanding installation that will eventually fill a room. It is an apothecary, a place of respite and a sanctuary. The work also functions as an archive and/or an alternate history of objects. The sculptures are an alchemical dialogue between new and found objects collected whilst walking, detritus that has fallen and been forgotten, thereby representing forgotten aspects of culture, language, nature etc., recycled into something else, something other. The work links to research into traditional storytelling, the myths, legends and wonder tales I grew up hearing.
