BREATH

A MEDITATION ON THE MATTER OF LIFE AND DEATH

 

 

BREATH presents stillness as the ultimate luxury.

Five artworks breathe in harmony, until their rhythm is interrupted by a

meditating figure, seated at the center of the show. Letting go of his own

mind, the figure finds their rhythm, taking his rightful place within the

natural order.


Working with a meditation practice, Based Upon has created a series

of works in stone and bronze, which remind us of our place within the

great unfolding pattern. The monoliths combine light, projection and

mechanics to assist their breathing.


Within the installation, the landscape and the body are together. Casts of

scars Based Upon found in the ancient limestone landscape of Inis Oírr

form the basis of their first collection of wearable pieces. The wearable

 pieces are the talismanic objects of the meditating figure at the heart

of the show.
