Eloise Fornieles - Forecast

March 10, 2011 by Kay

Eloise Fornieles

Forecast at Paradise Row

29 March - 2 April 2011

Forecast, Eloise Fornieles' new immersive installation, creates a series of spaces that co-exist at once, physical and aesthetic, psychological and emotional, that amount to an expanded portrait of the human body.

In the darkened gallery hundreds of black buckets full of seawater sit on the floor. Hanging above each bucket is a small, dimly glowing, light bulb.

The sound of a heartbeat, emitted at a low, almost subsonic frequency, fills the room. Its intensity varies, mimicking the critical moments of life, it's beginning in birth, during sex and during the onset of death. The low vibrations of the sound fill your chest and capture your breath.

From afar the dim lights become a constellation and so telescope space and time, linking the micro of the timescale and size of organic life to the macro of the timescale of the birth, life and death of the universe.
