Ceas’ installation is comprised of photos and video taken during her residency in Morocco in 2012. Representing the guardian huts Ceas encountered during her travels, a doorway mimicking the small security structures frames the gallery entrance and acts as a passageway into the artist’s installation. In describing the exhibition Ceas explains, “I walked, gathered and blessed; silently surveying people and place; upcycling and gifting in a nomadic trance.”
