The persistence of tradition.
The concepts in this body of work surround the ideologies of cultural objects and their association with memory and identity. Recognizable iconography is reinterpreted, and explores the notions of ‘handed down’ family artefacts and their continuing importance in our histories.
This work is part of a series that investigates the rituals surrounding play. The hierarchies, rules and intricacies constructed on the playground are unpicked and re-imagined, sometimes sitting uncomfortably alongside the learned behavior passed from our parents.
I am what I play.
The concepts in this body of work investigate the hierarchies constructed on the playground. The intricate rules connected to our childhood games are mirrored as we become ‘the grown-ups’.
“Who’s it?!" Who decides which child becomes the goody or the baddie? The small battles we entered into on the school field are repackaged back to when all we wanted was to be older - after all, the grown ups got to do all of the cool stuff, and seemed to have no rules to follow.
