Caitlin Hackett // FOR YOUR BONES WE WAIT

solo show • June 3rd - 28th, 2016

Caitlin’s new show focused on her recent fascination with creating work that explores the dichotomy of life and death, and the cyclical nature or it all by using composition that directly references that dichotomy. This series is a natural extension of her existing interests and past work, which has often featured endangered species, species extinction, pollution, mutation, death, and the fragile relationship between humans and animals. The show’s title comes from a famous Ossuary, a chapel of bones in Portugal called Capella Dos Ossos, which has a quote above the main entrance which reads, “We bones that are here for your bones we wait”. Caitlin found the symbolism of these Ossuaries to be incredibly relevant to what she wants to create for this show, the idea of a world built up on the bones of the lost; the countless extinctions, the dead beyond counting, making up the very earth we stand on, a world of ghosts.

Overall these new pieces are about being haunted. It’s a study of ghosts, and ghosts yet to be, capturing a feeling of the fragility and brevity of life, and a sense of loss.
