Emma Fielden: Coalescence
“To watch ‘Coalescence’ is to be raised into a buoyant state of satisfied expectation." *
What initially looks like Fielden’s concrete studio floor transforms into a state of fluidity as ink meets water. This video work is as much about the mathematical concepts of fluid dynamics and the Big Bang theory as it is about the emotional physicality of two materials becoming one.
Emma Fielden is represented by Dominik Mersch Gallery.
