In this New Year’s Commission, Lauren Kaigg continues her exploration of the substance within the void. What can emerge from the unknown, or between the duplicity of meaning. There is real and imagined in this image, emphasising our instinct to take stock of our starting point, but also the ongoing attempt to disrupt and create something new. The eeriness of the photograph which is characteristic of Kaigg’s visual language, feels like an honest representation of this moment, while the artificial light speaks to our collective responsibility and aspirations for the year.
“For this commission I wanted to experiment with the motif of white light, contrasted against a natural environment, to represent a sign of hope. To me, this image symbolises the possibilities, anticipation and mystery that comes with a New Year.”
