Mirror Image

A golden thread runs through each life and beyond, connecting parent to child ⎯ generation to generation. Its unique pattern reflects the journey of an evolving Self in search of self-protection, self-knowledge and self-fruition. The video installation, Mirror Image, probes the complexities of this binding thread in the relationship between a mother and daughter. Through their encounter with the enigmatic gaze of Medusa, archetypal symbol of the Great and Terrible Mother, they merge, individuate and transfigure. By collaging fragments of her drawings, etchings, photographs, and films into a dream world, Kelly represents her personal voyage into her subconscious, mirroring the healing transformation she has experienced as a woman, daughter and mother through this venture.
