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' contests art conservation conventions. Hundreds of unused readymade units morph into transactional beingmades which discretely absorb, swell and recede while padding substrates and walls, dampening noise and loading space with meaning. Feelings of vulnerability, nakedness, and memory expand into values-based questions about humanity, culture, conservation and universality.
