“Excusez-Moi?” is an installation that relates to ourselves and how we interact with our inner voices. In this collaboration, Belle Palmer and Tom Buckland interpret their own childhood experiences that shape their present everyday lives. This sculptural installation invites the viewer to immerse themselves into a disarray of familiar objects that create a space for our own reflections and to seek comfort in the uncomfortable - a metaphor for those moments in which we succeed to control our own “inner saboteurs”.
