Reliquary 1

Reliquary 1 is part of the Reliquary collection, a series of digital editions by Paul Benney released exclusively on Sedition. The series focuses on the visual language and spiritual significance of fire. The works in Reliquary combine animation with painting, physical and digital methods combine to communicate the ephemerality of flames and fire.

The Reliquary collection emphasises the metaphor of the flame as an animation and representation of the human spirit. The series of progressively spent candles represent the different stages of life and reflect life’s transitory, fleeting and mysterious qualities.

An added paradox comes from the impossibility of a flame staying alight in an airless bell jar; these animated digital/painted hybrids only deepen the mystery of what we mean by the concept of a meditation on the corporeal dialogue between body and soul.
