New photos have arrived of the installation 'That which we cannot see...'
Commissioned by Alchemy for The Haunting festival and exhibited at the Leeds Commercial Library, Adele responded to the ghost story entitled The Pomegranate Seed by Edith Wharton.
In the story there is a growing presence that cannot be identified. A happy new wife soon becomes worried by the darkening presence that she cannot see or confront. Her tension grows as the chilling presence leaves clues in a imagined dark house. The title takes homage from the Greek Myth where Hades, God of the Underworld, kidnaps Persephone and takes her to the underworld to be his wife. Despite her father's attempts (Zeus) at rescue, Persephone consumes the pomegranate seeds, which seal her fate. The ceramics reference the pomegranate pollen grain invisible to the naked eye as a metaphor for the ghostly presence.
