Murder of an Apple.
An apple in a plastic bag. An apple in a sealed plastic bag. An apple in a sealed plastic bag with words, dates, and places on it. An apple in a sealed plastic bag with words, dates, and places on it, hanging from the ceiling. She chews on the plastic bag. She chews on the seal. She chews on the words, dates, and places. She needs the plastic bag to know the apple. She cannot know the apple with the plastic bag. An apple hanging from the ceiling.

Elinor Lewis with Nuria Legarda Andueza.

This work attempts to look into, through and beyond the English Channel | La Manche. Through framing, this space in between is reimagined and other layers are unfolded and revealed. The edges on either side become stages from which to contemplate the time, space and distance in-between. Now but then, near but far, connected but apart.
