Double Take

Christina Hutchings

Bermudian, b. 1953

Ropes, chrome plated anchors, painted boxes and fluorescent lights


Collection of the artist

Exhibited in the 2016 Bermuda Biennial

“I use different materials – either for structural reasons, if a project is large, or for metaphorical purposes – to help tell the story, or idea, behind the piece,” says Hutchings.

“In the 2016 Biennial, with the theme being It’s About Now: Memories of The Present, I made a large piece called Double Take. In this piece, I use the fluorescent light, which is centered and situated vertically between the two almost identical anchors, to represent the instant that an object we look at (one anchor) becomes a memory of that anchor (the second anchor).”
