Gloria Bohorquez’s latest installation Global Veins currently showing in the Graduate School Gallery, invites the visitor to consider nature as a reason to pause, observe, absorb the detail and reflect on the inter-connectivity between the natural world and its inhabitants.
A second year Master of Fine Arts by research student at Sydney College of Arts, Gloria’s art is drawn from her childhood fascination with nature and how those memories become the blood vessels of her Colombian-Australian identity.
The installation features 400 hand-crocheted, cotton threads that hang around 3.5 metres from the gallery ceiling and incorporates insects, chicken bones, feathers and other organic materials.
“As one walks through the forest of threads, they are offered a passage to contemplate the transcendent connection between life and death and the intricate, fragile and magical line that entwines the existence of all living forms within the Universe,” said Gloria Bohorquez.
