Phoebe Cummings, 'Thought Barefoot'

Ani­ma Mun­di is delight­ed to present Thought Bare­foot’, a solo exhi­bi­tion of new works by Phoebe Cum­mings tak­ing place on one floor of the gallery.

Thought Barefoot' draws together different elements of Cummings’ practice, from ephemeral sculptures and objects, to works on paper and text. Through these different manipulations of material and time, attention is brought to the solace of gentle observation: toward the tenderness of shoots and the weight of fruit, growth and rotting, the hum of amorous insects and ultimately, silence. Attention shifts scale, it augments and magnifies, stretches and compresses, offering both a mirror and an escape, acceptance and hope. The title of the exhibition is taken from a fragment of writing by the Greek poet Sappho, whose words and their fractured material legacy, bring attention to the gaps where myth and lived experience touch.
