I have always been someone who gains tremendous comfort from returning to known places yet these spaces are often emotionally charged in equal measure. It is this complex mix which makes me return to my family’s now abandoned pool. “The Pool” was built in the late Sixties by our neighbours, (it wasn’t our house then) and I continued to swim in that pool on and off for most of my life. I think my Mum must have yearned for spaces she knew too because she bought the house when I was in my late teens. My own kids enjoyed the pool too when they were little until the day the filter broke about 10 years ago and Mum (completely over pool maintenance) said she wasn’t going to fix it any more! I watched with a mixture of despair and grief over the subsequent years as the pool fell into complete disrepair and past the point of return. It had become a reflection of time, aging and family dynamics. However, over time as the water lilies began to blossom and the ducks and frogs moved in, I began to see an evolution of purpose and to appreciate the pool’s wild beauty and evolving form. It had become a metaphor for change and letting go. Penelope Hunt’s photographs and videos are often entwined in her family history as she seeks to find meaning behind the importance of these spaces.

Penelope Hunt’s photographic and video works, whilst often of a personal nature poetically explore universal themes around time, mortality and the transitory nature of our existence. These observational works all contain a sense of stillness, beckoning the viewer to pause and take time to look. There is an endless quality to the work, particularly within the video pieces, as they fail to reach a conclusion and meditatively mirror the ongoing nature and palimpsest of time and our existence within it.
