Big Double Blockworks

Back to Sculpture

The ‘Double Blockworks’ are born out of my experience of dwelling with another in the Covid-19 lockdowns. This period of retreat taught me how the life and body of a significant other could become an extension of my own existence. The ‘Big Double Blockworks’ investigate how two bodies can find mutual stability through a shared centre of gravity. By uniting two columns of stacked blocks into a single mass, the works explore the space of physical proximity as both solid and precarious. At one-and-a-half life-size, these massive works act on the body consciousness of the viewer and celebrate vulnerability: the need for support and closeness.
