Swallow the Sun: At the Place Where It Happens To Be and more art by Adele Lazzeri

Swallow the Sun: At the Place Where It Happens To Be, 2021
9 x 9 cm (h x w)
GBP 300
Cyanotype Print on Plaster

This piece is an experiment on capturing the Sun.

Realised by pouring plaster onto the Earth’s surface, then tilted upside down, exposing the cast surface to the Sun. The light-sensitive print mixture changes quickly, following the Sun ray’s strengths and direction, revealing the blue and brown hues of the chemical process.

When this piece, a small cast of the Earth’s surface, enters the petri-dish, the activity of the making changes into the stillness of the finished. The artwork, as a link between the past and the present, between before and after, is enclosed in the small world of the petri-dish, where the Sunlight is absorbed by the light-absorbent painted background. As a point in between the Earth and the Sun, this piece is, by extension, a reflection on our relation to our place in the universe.
