Louise Meuwissen: Of Earth and Ether (Flowers never bend)

With devotion, joy and solemnity, Louise Meuwissen considers mortality and the eternal in this exhibition comprising textiles, jewellery, and found materials. Centring around themes of transience and permanence, ideas of keepsake and arresting time, Meuwissen adopts motifs of the arch, florals, and vessels of containment, drawing upon historical and mythological representations of these symbolic objects as manifestations of emotional holding, ritual, power, and as anchors for memory and belief.

This a personal exploration of the dichotomies – confrontation and denial – surrounding the inevitability of death.
