Ribboning III - 2020

As the third instalment in a performative series, Ribboning III investigates feminine complicity and inner reconciliation through the methodical and tender wrapping of satin ribbon onto the body.

 

Performed within the installation of carol & clover, Dudley establishes a designated sanctuary for contemplation upon the transition between childhood and girlhood. By conflating the act of ‘ribboning’ within her fabricated ritualistic refuge, a sense of private recalibration is observed.
