Photographic print of 'Fragility' by Elpida Hadzi-Vasileva at Fabrica Gallery 2015.

A series of delicate veils filled the central atrium of Fabrica’s building, a former church: rising from floor to ceiling, diffusing the light, obscuring the way forward. Two narrow passages, carefully pierced through the veined walls, invited us in. At the centre of the work one clear viewpoint toward the filtered light from the main window was revealed, an experience the artist compared to the flash of light reportedly observed when close to death.

Fragility, like much of the artist’s work over the past decade, re-appropriated animal viscera. In this instance caul fat, a membrane that holds the vital organs together, was transformed from a perishable waste product of the pork industry into a sublimely beautiful translucent material via a lengthy chemical process akin to embalming.
