Liminal Space was the tilte of my MA Fine Art final body of work, which was a mixed-media installation. 

The Liminal Space installation presents the bodily engagement with an idea in which I investigate the act of holding one’s breath underwater. For me this represents a liminal state between life and death. For this project, I trained for over three months and undertook free-diving courses in order to fully explore the potential limits of breathing, an activity which we take for granted and where thought does not usually play a part. I understand this performance as a personal rite of passage and the curation of the installation drew symbolically on the rite’s three phases: Separation, Liminality and Incorporation.
