Kaitlin Wilson

The suitcase has become very important to Ms. Wilson in her recent work.  For this gentle young woman, it embodies duality. It is a symbol of both transition and the desire for security, of both departure and arrival, both leaving things behind and bringing things with you.  It becomes the tangible form for stability, while the human figure, in the installed Waiting Part II, is the form for transience, instability, impermanence and insecurity.
