My practice has an ‘umbilical cord’ to my past; my memories and experiences of adolescence and childhood feed my sculptural practice. Through material investigation my practice has taken the following embodiment; sculptural objects representing the members of a witch’s coven. I engage with the idea of the works overwhelming a space, the works become excessive, almost a hoard of unsettling second-hand objects that sit awkwardly within a space.
I have appropriated the domestic fabric I encountered as a child and regenerated those memories by disrupting the materiality of the fabric. The works almost having been ‘impregnated’ with an individual’s ‘human essence’. Through this notion the material embodies a certain ‘magical power’ it has become almost charged with the life of the previous owner.
