David Heke - A Liminal Space

The word liminal comes from the Latin word limen, meaning threshold – any point or place of entering or beginning. A liminal space is the time between the ‘what was’ and the ‘next.’ It is a place of transition, waiting, and not knowing.
The work in this gallery explores the idea of the seashore as a liminal space – a boundary, a place of transition between worlds physical, intellectual and spiritual. The ocean is a world we evolved from but can no longer survive within naturally. We're forever drawn back to it but can never really return. Standing on the shoreline we enter that space, on the edge of many worlds, looking outwards yet also looking in.
The artwork in this room, though made up of individual pieces, works together to become a singular experience, helping bring that sense of a liminal space, and takes us to that point where the sea touches the shore, and the many worlds, both corporeal and non-corporeal, co-exist.
