de-constructing mens’ business suits

This body of work across sculpture , installation, video and performance, looks at gender, power and identity, through my interference with and manipulation of mens’ business suits. The iconic status of the suits and its default attachment to power, is subverted through different forms of deconstruction: cutting with a scalpel , fraying, pulling apart, picking, badly applying mascara. Sanding,  shredding, drilling with a large drill. .
