Remains explores our difficult relationship with dirt, dust and discarded body matter.

 

'Remains (dust)'  depicts the contents of my vacuum cleaner in the form of a mandala, connecting dust to life. It reveals and reconfigures the discarded to provoke and question dual reactions of attraction and disgust.

'Remains (hair)'  displays hair tangles, collected from my comb.  'Remains (skin)'  displays skin from my hands, which has flaked off due to chronic eczema. Within the body conscious culture of Western society we are preoccupied with hair and skin care, but we find this bodily matter repulsive when it becomes detached from ourselves.
