Exhibitions / Mending

01.09.2008 to 27.09.2008


Mending is an installation for Vitrine at Platform Artist Space.


Mending is a makeshift shrine to healing, reconciliation and sustainability.


The word and act of mending conjure up a bygone age when things were repaired, darned, fixed, reused, worked on, put right.


On the mend…. mending fences…. mending one’s ways…. mending worn out clothes. …mending a broken heart ….


Images derived from old first aid books combine with found and fabricated surgical items to the effect that the piece evokes a window display from a different era.
