Kath Fries, Proliferation, Gaffa Gallery, Sydney. Feathers, dimensions variable and changing daily, from 1st to 13th July 2010.
The gallery is divided into two sections, the bigger space filled with masses of feathers seemingly bursting out of the corners and cascading over the top of the false wall from a dark cavity beyond. In contrast to this, suspended in the second space is a single white feather, just above eye-level almost hovering in the spotlight and inviting focused contemplation. (Above images)
Amongst the amassing feathers scattering up the walls, a few white ones are almost camouflaged, seemingly visibly demonstrating a more substantial existence via their shadows than in their physical tangible reality.
