Through using soft sculpture with metal and wire, my work invites a sense of bodily introspection through looking at abjection and the uncanny. My practice currently explores teeth and their 'limbo' status within the body; they are preconceived as being inside the mouth, a portal to the inner body. Yet, they are exposed to the outer body; they bite, and contact the outer body.
"Cavity" in particular evokes the form of not only a tooth but also a spider. This wirey uncanny form has featured in my work constantly, making me think about the interchangeability and similarities we have with uncanny, creature-like forms. The wire jutts out at the viewer, looking and waiting… very still, yet objectively noticeable.
