Growing up I moved regularly between Northern Ireland and Belgium so I am interested in the transitory nature of ‘the home’. The concept of a home, usually perceived as strongly linked to a permanent building, can be something more temporary. It consists of the ever-evolving content we carry with us and the personal archaeology we leave behind.
The thin plastic sheeting has an inherent adaptability and temporality, emphasising the delicacy and fragility of personal space. The white floor creates an evolving aspect: as the audience leave dusty footprints own pathway, becoming part of the installation.
Two Thousand Four Hundred Years of Collaboration
Exploring the hierarchy of ‘high art’ and ‘low art’, this installation took the infamous ‘Venus De Milo’ and played with the pinnacle of the ornamental and decorative – the garden gnome. When an artwork is shrunken, reproduced numerous times, and commercialised – does that weaken its position in the fine art world or strengthen its status through popularity and notoriety?
