In the book of Genesis, Lot’s Wife was transformed into a pillar of salt because of a moment of disobedience or lack of faith.  She lost her humanness but became immortal as a symbol.

Like Lot’s Wife, the works in this exhibition have undergone a mysterious transformation.  Familiar objects and materials have been modified or misused but a hint of their former identity remains.  The results are startling, funny, poignant and unsettling.
