Going Going

Going Going

by Judith Bromley


Pink and grAy weigh pearls, performed as a silent, reverential ritual. This work explores the journey of souls and how they are judged after the body's death. Pearls are associated with great worth. These pearls as souls are weighed to determine the placement of each in one of three boxes. Pink and grAy take great care to move each pearl through this process of tacit meaning. The work was inspired by the words of George Fox 'Keep within. For the measure is within, and the light is within, and the pearl is within you' This event is part of Seeking Routes, Swarthmoor Hall's summer art exhibition organised in collaboration with Quaker Arts Network
