The Wall (US)

Vermont, USA — 2019

A grid of woven new-born diapers lines the wall of a studio barn in Johnston VT. The soft multiple units develop a rhythm and pattern – familiar across cultures and time. The Wall (US) encompasses a door and turns a corner, proposing both structure and membrane, evoking physical and permeable borders, controls on movement, safety and danger. Stretched inside out, the creamy padded field is seductive and sublime, absorbs sound and moisture, and pulls hands in to stroke and explore. Individual units have unique skin-like folds and creases, the personal and human core woven into the collective ‘us’. A white enclosure, The Wall (US) holds its audience under the ever-present gaze of an independent free-standing companion, Alpha Male.
