Resilience is a one-meter high rotating cabinet also made from ash wood. Fit with custom shelves, the piece holds a number of intimate works – small paintings and concertina artist books made by Belinda, and two video works, one made by Todd Fuller and the other by Remi Wörtmeyer. Collectively Resilience brings together four voices and, in many ways, is a ‘cabinet of curiosities’.
Wilfred who designed the final structure for this work in response to Belinda, Todd and Remi’s pieces, describes it as a “residential tower” with apartments put behind bars, that are longing to open up again. Belinda envisioned that Resilience would offer audiences moments of discovery and reprieve, the video works lighting up in the evening to cast light, hope and offer a signal of unity.
The duo Belinda Fox and Wilfred explored ideas, challenging and expanding each other’s practice. For Close to Home, they have created two pieces, Rising Tide (2020) and Resilience (2020).
