A Weighing of the Heart
RAG Red Box
21 May – 11 July 2020
Location: Capalaba Place, Noeleen Street, Capalaba
Simple creative rituals can calm the heart and lighten an emotional burden we may carry. In this transformative installation, Rachel Apelt invites viewers to enter the space of the RAG Red Box to participate in this work that begins as a bare statement about environmental devastation.
The white suspended branches cast a ghostly presence and materials are provided to transform this space of mourning into one of hope and renewal. By gathering personal responses, Apelt will metaphorically weigh the community’s ‘heart’. She hopes people will leave the installation with a lighter spirit and a greater determination to mend our environment.
