reconfigure


“The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new lands but seeing with new eyes.” - Marcel Proust


I am interested in how we interpet and understand the way language impacts and how by removing a familiar context from the image or phrase, it can liberate and open the interpretation.

In this work, BankNote (2015-2016) the R100,00 becomes an object of exchange, but also is about putting intrinsic value back into something, previously overlooked. Each small porcelain square reference is labour intensively crafted and took well over 3 months to initially put together. It was then re-configured on pvc (Perspex) and mounted along with a neon ‘watermark’ of Mandela’s outline.
