EXHIBITION TEXTS

The repetitive chant of “I believe in love” manifests a non-denominational universalism in belief, both as announcement and affirmation, of a philosophy of compassion, harmony and goodness in a contemporary world of intolerance and indifference.

The words “I believe in love” symbolically and metaphorically fill the cupped hands, which are then passed over the speaker’s face and head, much like in the act of washing or blessing, suggesting the essential nature or soul of the speaker in this universal hope for humanity. Living with and exercising a desire to believe in love can unify all differences.
