Within the cyclical nature of life, the body is a shell to hold us together in this balancing game of life and death. Kambo’s latest work is an investigation of the inner spirit where she draws upon her own personal totemic symbols. Influenced by her upbringing in a household filled with superstition, prayer and religious ceremony.

The work draws inspiration from Janus the Roman God of beginnings and transitions. Consisting of a multi screen installation using projection and televisions to create an immersive and transient landscape. The screens mirror Janus’ ambiguous depiction of time, playing at once and relating to one another.

Objects within the space act as tokens from a journey, like relics left behind from an ancient time.

The works within the show have been creating during a months residency at Praxis Gallery within Commercial Union House.

Janus is Supported using public funding by Arts Council England.
