“Save me father for I have lived” is an installation piece that discusses the connection between loss, growth and suffering. It features the acts of the past foreshadowing, the future observing and the present fallings. With each traumatic occurrence we experience a new falling. Thus, a new part of ourselves is born.
The title of the work is a play on the catholic saying “Forgive me father for I have sinned” that is often said before a confession. This is said during confession as a plea for forgiveness while what is said in my title is a plea for comfort. Comfort from the weight of living life in a repetitious cycle of loss, suffering and growth.
