Shelley Sharr

What is it to be in a state of waiting for one’s hopes and desires to be fulfilled? When do we start hearing our own thoughts and memories? In this art project, Shelley Sharr works with questions of origin and destination, by building a room and the way there, inspired by the symbolism of the lighthouse. A lighthouse is there to signal shallow water, danger, or to guide and facilitate sailing. The lighthouse, in this case as a representation and which shares characteristics with other phenomena. Portraying an idea about what we know nothing about is always inferior to the truth or origin. The depiction of the room, as an inward-looking lighthouse, is a room to be, waiting for something to appear.
