Enfold is a new installation exploring meditation, forgiveness and gentleness.
Whilst struggling with a situation where she felt she couldn't simply 'forgive and forget', Francesca
became fascinated by the idea of repeated motifs and physical actions that she could use, day by day, to draw closer slowly to forgiving. This took the form of an origami crane: simultaneously representing freedom and transformation.
The continual processes of drawing and folding, replicating the same movements again and again, provides an opportunity to enter a more peaceful mode, to process and move forwards. It invites us to reframe forgiveness as a continual process, rather than an instant decision; small embodied rituals that allow us to let go little by little. While Francesca is still working on it, 'Enfold' is a display of some of this process as it continues.
Francesca is a Geordie gal working between London and Cornwall as an artist and writer.
