Inside Out

My exploration into interiority of the physical body has led me to focus on internal folds present in intestines. Strongly influenced by my Grandad’s profession as a Master Butcher, there have been many conversations regarding the internal body as my research and interest in the subject develops. By ruching fabric and piping jesmonite,

I explore and communicate the depth and movement visible in intestines when the intricacies are revealed to us.

 

I contrast this dynamism by constructing frames, which act as an exoskeleton, suggesting containment and a level of restriction. The pieces are created as if ‘consuming’ the body: an external representation of the internal, visually celebrating the fold and worn as jewellery objects.
