Holding Time

Currently on display in the Octagonal Exhibition Space

Six months in the making, Holding Time is a body of work that expresses Hape Kiddle’s reverence for the material and the natural environment, and at the same time it’s a reflection on the human condition. ‘We are not what we were. Not the person we were ten years ago, not even yesterday. Nothing that grows can ever be the same again. So be gentle, to ourselves... and others.’


There is stillness

And quiet

In this grain

Is the history of the world

In my hands is kinship

I am holding time...
