Repair, 2018

Found Object, Thread

Repair is about the processes of natural decay, reparation and preservation. The bucket symbolized a womb, or the female body as a vessel which contains. The thread is attempting to hold this old rusted bucket together, yet failing to do so. 

The thread and the bucket are strong, yet delicate and fragile. The bucket once long ago served its purpose, but has passed it’s time and is no longer useful as a vessel but still beautiful and showing it’s scars and age spots proudly.
