The incompleteness and contradictions inherent in life affect us all - whether as participants or observers. We share experiences of waiting and the sense of nothing happening. We can have feelings of isolation and emptiness, or exist between things, in a sort of no-man’s land, or we can simply encounter awkward moments. In all of these instances there can be an acceptance of the middle-space — a moment of limbo.

Projected into a confined vault within the church crypt, With Nightmare sense of fleeing is a piece exploring entrapment and stasis. The looped video portrays a caged bird endlessly flapping within the architectural space - unable to escape.
