 Alienation and Brutality and Sugar and Spice - 2019

Material is united in Alienation and Brutality and Sugar and Spice (2019) through the acts of condensing and entrapment. Debris mingles within a distinctly enclosed space, as if it were a semi-dysfunctional, rogue, dystopian organism. 

By combining objects from my personalised archive, a surrogate body is fabricated. Presenting a metaphorical self allows me to externalise and process traumatic experiences and internal dissonance.
