Karl Chilcott

Experiences


I work with stones and bones, trunks and branches, flowers, feathers,
grass, sands, lines in the landscape, moss, flowers, ferns, trees, roots,
drift wood, seaweed and shells, glaciers, ice and snow, rain and fog,
traces and cultural left overs, tide and waves, shadows and lights,
echoes from the past and stories. Celebrating Nature, working in
“Essential Loneliness” (Maurice Blanchot) is my idea. With my
installations and sculptures I want to express the place that
is attracting me. The message is growing in a dialogue between
me and the place, the nature surrounding. Open mind and empty
hands is the way I try to experience, to come closer to a place.
After documentation I dismantle my works immediately.
Left are experiences of another space behind time.
