Nappy Work


Repeating units of stacked newborn nappies/diapers stretch open in a soft and absorbing monochromatic grid.  Estimated to take over 500 years to breakdown in landfill, the 'disposable work' tests and exceeds art conservation conventions.  The unused readymade units morph into the transactional beingmade which discretely absorbs, swells and recedes while padding substrates and walls, dampening noise and loading space with potential meaning.  Questions of vulnerability, nakedness, and memory expand into wider issues of culture, conservation and universality.
