How do people view the
world they live in? That is my inspiration for a new series called ‘Our world’
and begins with my own.
My world is built up from thousands of carefully placed
objects and materials sourced from my own childhood belongings, donations of
old ‘treasures’ from friends and neighbours and many, many visits to second-hand
shops. I have created a 3d sculpture of a world consisting of my memories,
hopes and life experiences. I started by selecting objects that help illustrate
different stories and memories. At the base of the world, a multitude of stories
tell of life and death, war and peace, fun and laughter, in earthy colours of
blue, green, brown and black. Towards the centre, a volcano emerges, built up
of brightly coloured, sparkling and humorous objects and characters, at the
centre of which is my resting place, where a clay figure of myself lays feeling
satisfied and content in the safety of this world. Animal and insect species
and fantasy creatures are prominent throughout this piece and act as guards
protecting my world. This is in reference to one of the most magical periods of
my life, when I spent 5 years living isolated in a tent studying wild
chimpanzee behaviour. My world offers hope, a balance of power and a
place of happiness and aims to offer the viewer hours of discovery.
