Sheila Ghelani: Rat, Rose, Bird Competition
Subtly mashing up cultures, curios, objects and ideas, Rat Rose Bird is a poetic meditation on farewells, departures, long journeys and “the hunt” – for a better life, a better love, a place to drop anchor or a space to claim as ‘one’s own’.
Thematically the work explores Sheila Ghelani’s personal relationship to empire, colonialism, travel and love and more broadly tries to uncover links that might exist between “the heritage of the human past and the life of a personal psyche”.
Sheila inhabits the work as a kind of hostess/magician, exploring, exploding and mixing a host of ingredients; champagne, rats, roses and birds that become the fabric of the work. Sheila also delivers a transfixing poetic treatise in front of the red velvet theatre curtains, which open to reveal a chorus-line of TVs displaying memories of the past.
