New light and sound installation by Mary Branson
Following on from her iconic New Dawn sculpture in the Houses of Parliament, Branson’s latest light installation is ‘A Conversation With My Mother’ in The Swiss Church, Covent Garden.
The Piece examines notions of frozen grief and the power of the subconscious to help process complex emotions.
In 2005 my mother was diagnosed with dementia, and she began a slow decline where we became separated. Over the past five years she has gradually lapsed into silence.
This artwork is inspired by a lucid dream in which I heard her voice clearly again.
We were sat together in a boat with two bench seats, set on still water and lit by moonlight.
I awoke comforted, relieved that we were finally able to talk.
Ambiguous or ‘frozen’ loss is a kind of bereavement, felt when a person is present, but not be mentally or emotionally in touch.
The show is in The Swiss Church, Endell St. I’ve been thinking about this piece for a long time, looking for the right setting – I think this is it. It’s a sculptural light installation, featuring sound.
Artists talk 6pm on the 23rd Feb Mary Branson will be discussion with physiotherapist Susan McGrath
