By Julia Champtaloup For artist Simryn Gill, here can be a place between where we have been and where we are going, an intertidal zone of memory and time.

 

“Necklaces made of plastics and metals hang on blackened  walls in circles for the work entitled Naught. For this installation, Gill employed her precise collecting and gathering of found objects, some from her home in Malaysia, reflecting her own personal history.  The objects could have been washed up on the shores of any tidal zone, carrying tales of the many and of our resource rich and wasteful society.”
