Ancestor is a piece carved in abstract conversation with the dead. It is a story of uncovering bone memory, about understanding and developing a reciprocal relationship with ancestry.
William Versace’s latest body of work “Kinship” is a sculpture series challenging notions of the lone artist, all being carved by hand in the presence of kindred.
Says William of his work, “The pieces are mnemonic objects with rich conversations encoded into the lines and curves, acting as a physical memory shaped from immaterial dialogue. The sculptures, therefore, could perhaps be seen as not fully my own, but a collaborative ode to my tightly woven web of relations, bringing light to how they shape me, how they shape my purpose and how without them, I do not exist.”
