Memory work 2

Soldier's child (2013)
Dimensions: 66.5 cm x 39.5 cm

I seem to have moved away from producing a single object and have become fascinated with exploring series, groupings, families of artworks, tracing relationships, shared qualities, differences.

Memory work 1


Veteran's girl (2013)
 Dimensions: 45 cm x 26 cm
Materials: crocheted from wool/polyester yarn

Most of my work over the last few years has been concerned with childhood memory, its shifting grounds, fictions, inflections. I’m becoming more interested in what we can’t concretely remember, because it is not part of our experience, but are affected by: inherited memory. How we are embedded in time, history, through the accident of when and were we are born, but more specifically through our family history. When does a person’s past start? Is there ever a point at which we have no past?
