In the Breathing Light (4/12 SOLO)

Ng Hui Hsien


Dark and mysterious, caves evoke thoughts of the unknown. To enter a cave is to meet our fears, to grasp the hidden parts of ourselves, and to experience a space that seems to sit between this world and another. Emerging from a cave, we may feel humbled yet strengthened, transformed by the encounter. In the Breathing Light is an installation that reimagines a cave and seeks to evoke a sense of stillness. For it is in stillness perhaps, that we may recognise, confront and release the thoughts and emotions that lie hidden in our subconscious.
