The second set of site specific installations were shown in the Crypt Gallery, London, in April 2012, where two sharply contrasting moods were produced.
In the shadows, amongst the gravestones, a corroded mannequin wearing a rusted gown sat comfortably, at ease with her decay. She presented a decadent but dignified vision of nature’s inevitable outcome.
A deceptively light approach to the search for identity reveals a darker message related to the role of women in many parts of the world. Five shiny, white, seated mannequins are swathed in swirls of clear plastic. Their faces are dominated by transparent goggles as they gaze at the floor. They are contained by their plastic shrouds, their confining skins. Transparent faces mingle with the silent group, seen and unseen. The face of contemporary youth, free and full of choices exists in contrast to women bound by tradition and expectation.
