Residual Haunting, Catherine Bertola
‘Residual Hauntings’ is a triptych of photographs originally commissioned for The Bronte Parsonage Museum, Haworth UK. The images are of the artist enacting domestic rituals and actions performed by the Bronte sisters - as described in written records held at the museum. The actions include pacing around the dining room table, running up and down the stairs and sweeping the kitchen floor. These ghostly vignettes reanimate the spaces of the Parsonage, recreating a sense of the movement that previously filled the room.

When Virginia Woolf said, "Lock up your libraries if you like; but there is no gate, no lock, no bolt that you can set upon the freedom of my mind" and when Charlotte Brontë said, "I am no bird; and no net ensnares me: I am a free human being with an independent will."

Crying does not indicate that you are weak. Since birth, it has always been a sign that you are alive.
