Play Along,

Instillation view at Free Range, London, UK.

Play Along (2017) exhibited at Free Range, London, UK and The Mall, London, UK. Play Along evokes a stage set referencing a domestic living space with distinct differences. Wood chips cover the floor, fig trees line the edge of the work and several bodies emerge from the furniture which occupies the space to explore the polarity of order and chaos, domestic and wild, and personal and public. The installation acts as a snapshot into the immediate aftermath of experiencing the unexpected loss of a loved one. The contorted bodies - modelled after the artist's own body - represent different emotional states she experienced: confusion, anger and sadness.
