Hymn 23 incorporates sensations of healing, a cathartic cleansing of the dichotomies that exist between morals and faith / personal and social - our own and those inherited. The work was produced to support my dissertation and as a site for research during my residency with Bruntwood and Grand Union. The collection was commissioned by Bruntwood to be exhibited in Manchester, 2020, but was cancelled due to Covid 19.
"I am the first and the last. I am the honored one and the scorned one. I am the whore and the holy one. I am the wife and the virgin. I am the mother and the daughter... I am she whose wedding is great and I have not taken a husband... I am knowledge and ignorance... I am shameless and I am ashamed. I am strength and I am fear... I am foolish and I am wise... I am godless, and I am one whose God is great."
