Opening on 30 August, Foam 3h presents Gathering Wool.
This project by English photographer Joss McKinley (1981) will make
its debut in Foam. 'Gathering wool' means daydreaming, originating
from the time when farmers' wives and daughters gathered the wool
left behind by sheep in the bushes and heaths. During these quiet
moments they were able to put their thoughts in order and to
daydream. McKinley's project deals with this daydreaming and the
human desire for nature, quiet and time. His photos portray the
stillness and serenity that seems to be missing in our modern,
often busy lives.
