Kenneth Lancelot Suico – Totem Spirit Rope
Site Number: 7
Site Location: Worker’s Club Seventh Gallery window, 51 Brunswick St.
Artwork Title: Totem Spirit Rope
Artist: Kenneth Lancelot Suico
In Totem spirit rope, Suico is investigating our ability to transfer the visual experience of tension and release to the physical reality in which we find ourselves.
The project has been redeveloped from a video sculpture exploring the effect of tension and release of objects within a defined space. Ropes are a reoccurring feature in Suico’s work, where he uses them to represent connection and attachment, but also the constant possibility of restraint.
