Tori Ferguson’s multi-disciplinary practice is typified by an apparent banality and a uniform persistence that considers the essential structures of human life: time and memory. In Hold out, Ferguson reveals a tension between the permanent and the impermanent, the enduring and the ephemeral. She comments on our alliances with the past, and our compulsion to preserve our experiences, to pay tribute. Here, on the one hand, we have the laboured creation of monument, and on the other, we are witness to the ‘sub rosa’, the fleeting.
