The Shower Installation
This installation explores vulnerability and confrontation through body language alongside relevant household items. A bathroom is, hopefully, the most private space we can occupy as humans. Not only for the sheer cycle of release but perhaps a place where one can lock the door, turn on the hot water and unravel in peace. Slightly scaled- up figures are seen nude with their hands tied. Long hair caught in drains anchors them to their environment, unable to escape. Exposed and powerless they maintain eye contact with the viewer confronting them as they approach. It’s important that these figures, while in a vulnerable and passive state, still hold onto a type of power. This is the crux of growth. When we are at the very lowest, most vulnerable point and the strength that comes from navigating through it.
