Inspired by a dream while in the Netherlands for the Incarnate placement, these artworks by Heidi Salzwedel deal with place, history and spirituality through the lens of two towns that share the same name. The two locations are the tourist town of Delft in Holland and the notoriously dangerous Delft in the Western Cape of South Africa.
While they appear on the surface to stand on opposite ends of a spectrum socially, politically and geographically, Heidi uses the metaphor of water to ask questions about the imminent proximity of spiritual fulfillment in both. To see the full exhibition, visit www.40stones.org.
