For Cupar Arts Festival 1016, Juliana Capes is showing Exodus, a new installation that spans the threshold between indoor and outdoor space.
Objects carry much significance, attracting bravado or anxiety. They have the potential to effect human reactions to a space. In Exodus a flock of lost umbrellas is spanning the threshold, crossing a boundary, moving en masse to escape the curse upon those who open indoors. Inspired by current human mass migrations across Europe, Exodus wonders whether humans can ever escape their fate.
Juliana builds complex installations from the repetition and adaptation of simple forms and objects, in this case the umbrella. Obsessive and experimental, made from everyday items with symbolism beyond their utility, her installations transform the mundane into the mesmeric.
Exodus will be at the Cupar Arts Festival Hub from 18-25 June 2016
