'The Weight', 2013 - Adeline de Monseignat
“‘The Weight’ is a project for ‘Articulate’ show at Victoria Miro by Dramatic Need, a charity that helps children express themselves creatively to overcome past traumatic experiences. The brick wall is a monument to honour young Meine’s story. Each carefully ‘clothed’ brick bears a word or two of her handwriting - “red and white like my school uniform”, she confesses over Skype. Each row of bricks is a line of her text, the wall her testimony and foundation to a more solid future.
Sold individually, each brick like a piece of a puzzle, a piece of her story, is to be passed on in order for the weight and word to be spread and shared.
