Abstract (English)

"In Olivia Whetung’s exhibition Passages, an intended overlap in meaning of : a passage of text, a passage of water, and the passage of time, all relate to a sense of moving through the collected works in the exhibition. The works embody the associative process the artist uses in her pixel-to-bead grids for the translation of photographic pixels into individual glass beads that render depictions of text, water, land and sound. All works encompass acts of translation and function as associative mnemonic devices, reminders of ancestral echoes and future reverberations." -- p. [2].
