Through the Shelter of Love

Location: Gallivan Center
Through the Shelter of Love

In Through the Shelter of Love, DeDecker portrays a family of six playing a game of London Bridge. “The parents are protective and their arms enclose the children, creating a nest or shelter for them,” DeDecker explains. “At the same time they give children the freedom to play, grow, and become parents themselves.” For DeDecker the game is a metaphor for the traditions and values that parents pass down to their children, including everything from childhood games to feelings of security.
