This work alludes to the dispersal of the bodies molecules, and the soul’s energy, through the biosphere after death. A CAD sectional drawing was made of a prone human body and recreated in perspex rods. The opaque sections of the rods represent the body, which appears to be floating over the transparent sections, and over the body of water from which ir rises, like a body levitating lightly.
Jane Theau and Mandy Pryse-Jones have pursued separate art practices for several years and our artistic collaboration JaM, came to fruition 2 years ago when we were both awarded a residency at the Primrose Park Studio. From this residency we developed ideas for exhibitions at Primrose Park and the Bondi Pavillion in 2010. The JaM collaborative practice is largely focused on human interactions with the landscape. Our first public sculpture was a piece titled ‘From life to life’ in the 2011 Hidden exhibition at Rookwood.
