to rest in their very own matchbox coffins or splayed about the
exhibition space, the blackened matches reference worn out – or more
so burned out human beings. the work started from the various head
molds and bamboo wood sitting in the artist’s studio which were left
over from a movie production in china while he was residing in beijing.

A London based installation artist, Lee Borthwick, has a wonderful
selection of branches and logs in her workshop. She makes these stunning
installations using natural, organic and reclaimed materials. The
mirror-covered chunks of wood allow the viewer to recapture the sense of
reflection offered by dramatic landscape; the whole work evokes the
feel of places, moving beyond visual into tangible feelings. Lee’s
inspiration is the beautiful nature of Finland – lakes, forests and
vast, solitary spaces, the peace she found there is the element linked
to each of her work.
