Abstract

“On the Edge” at the Eigeroya lighthouse in Egersund was organized by Ha Gamle Prestegard as part of Stavanger 2008 European Capital of Culture. The exhibition ran from 4 May-31 August 2008. Judith Cowan was one of the artists invited by Michael Petry to participate in ‘Golden Rain’, one of a series of international projects. Invited to make a work considering the classical tale of Danae and Perseus, which would be displayed, then placed in sealed glass vials which would be thrown into the sea. Cowan’s contribution was the repeated sentence “I am the rain” in gold thread hand sewn onto a white linen handkerchief leaving the back showing all the loose threads. It suggested Zeus’s embodiment within the golden thread and continued her work on performative gesture.Golden Rain was also shown in Museum of Houston (2011), Palm Springs Art Museum (2012).
