Salt on LEA7 by Eliza Wierwight

Salt is an installation by Eliza Wierwight on the LEA7 sim. Salt is incredibly powerful and I had the pleasure of exploring it with its creator. She took me around during her opening exhibition yesterday and I live streamed it to my YouTube channel, you can watch it at this link: https://youtu.be/Plv_Yu7QSS8

This installation was also very emotional for me and you’ll notice in the video I had to hold back tears at times. I feel like everyone should take some time to visit as it covers very dark, but important topics. I also love that she incorporated a tribute to This is America by Childish Gambino.

Here is a quoted statement from the artist herself about Salt:

As a fuller Immersive piece the philosophy of salt presents this way, I invite you to consider the journey through the installation as experiencing-dining from a pre-set menu of somewhat unpalatable stories & truths. Some of my own, some not. Though all manifestly important to me irrespective of origin. I’ve quite deliberately misappropriating the term ‘degustation’, this imparted itself as an ideal transition, as each segment-course is a unique work of it’s own volition. There are however other threads that drift through the work, as I’ve permit myself a further interplay of symbolic references in relation to the accoutrement’s of sustenance. In the context of literal salt, a basic commodity that exists in most kitchens of the World, it became a metaphor for the things that wound us, a conduit​. ​Another​ thread ​meandering​ through this work, relates to the Japanese philosophy of Kintsugi, embracing the unique, flawed or imperfect. Life ingratiates itself with such hardship at times.

If we are the wounded, then let us embrace where possible those challenges & scars, and in surviving them or in our empathy for others that do, see ourselves as the beauty​. W​e are the fine art.
