The Echo as Residue
Mixed Media 2016
This installation brings together new work made specially for this space. I have been playfully curious recently of how archive material can provide evidence for traces left by the birth of other pieces of work. The selection process for the objects chosen in Beads were harvested from my studio space and floor preventing the destination to the rubbish bin and separating them individually from an amassment. These represent touchpoints of physical connections and conversations that would be possibly discarded and become ghosts within an echo of relationships that exist by different means.
Numb Points are solid casts taken from money thimbles. Filling the void in the making process became a tangible voice for there is nothing to count anymore, apart from these stones. Each embody differences that are forced by speed and repetition in the production of killing the wearable and memorialising assigned ideas to the original object.
Removing the Veil is a shifting body of work dependent on space. Each doll contains amounts of my hair from the past ten years. Thinking and challenging the idea of just how an object can become wearable is something I question a lot. These suspended revisions show how my work can live away from the body and represent intimate fragmented associations between body and objects.
