This series of work across sculpture , installation, video and performance, looks at gender issues, power , balance, through my interference with mens’ business suits. Cutting with a scalpel , fraying, pulling, picking, poking, filleting, applying mascara, eyeliner. Sanding, drilling. Spinning with a large drill. Sewing a clutch of wired, red ceramic fingerprints to the crotch of the suit trousers. Bringing together techniques and tools that have been traditionally gendered. Acting them out in the same space together and to the same objects: aggressively applying make-up, bad sewing, using large power tools.
These videos (on vimeo) and images capture some of the process.
