I reflect on the ambiguous within the art object.
During an ‘actual’ Art Therapy Large group I took a page from my notebook and tore it, articulating the paper into a sculptural form. Hearing each other fully has been challenged: obscured by virtual ‘flattening’ or indistinct and anonymised by masks, we have experienced a loss of ‘hearing/seeing’ and of being ‘heard/seen’.
An ear, a shell-like structure, an alimentary tract, a labyrinth. This artwork captures, for me, the visceral nature of ‘taking in’ or ‘listening’ within therapeutic relationships.
