August

2001, Video, 6:15 (Colour, Stereo)

by Sharon Alward

A ritual of grief and expiation, August looks to the sky as a means to connect to the infinity of creation and the source of awareness. Mystics believe that the awareness of this unity may be sufficient to carry us through our most difficult times. The artist reflects on her past as she contemplates her impending mortality.
