Dish-Dash Angels / 2014


Angels are the guardians which facilitate one’s attainment of complete faith. Through our respective experiences, they travel alongside us and record every detail from our actions and report them back to God. It is Angels that will receive us at the gates which people of faith devoutly strive to enter. In this video installation I allow the wind to dictate where these Angels may be. In particular, the Angel Mikael is he who is responsible for directing the rain and winds according to the will of God. These garments symbolize the committed presence of Angels and encourages the viewer to meditate on the notion that the divine manifests around us at all times.     - Arwa Abouon
