Opening at TREE object | space | desire @ 5:30pm on the 18 February 2016.
Unveiling is an exhibition that explores the symbolism of birds in relation to grief and death. Artist Angela Tier has created photographs and ceramics which investigate this subject, leaving the viewer open to reflect upon their own beliefs about the connection between birds being the passing carriers of loved ones’ souls to a place beyond our mortal world.
This is not an uncommon idea when you relate it to popular cult movies such as The Crow, religious depictions of angels having the bodies of humans and the wings of a bird, as well as the Egyptians, who believed in the afterlife and placed great significance on birds.
