Dish-Dash Angels / 2014

"Believers look up - take courage. The angels are nearer than you think."

Angels are the guardians which facilitate one’s attainment of complete faith. Through our respective experiences, they travel alongside us on this journey of life. 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
