With inordinate Heaviness, 2017

The ‘liveness’ of dough fascinates me. It is a biological material containing yeast and bacteria. It is never static, but consistently growing and morphing. It is a material that resists to hold shape – it relaxes, it gives over to gravity, it has no material memory. Alongside this, I am drawn to how the hands and body intuitively manipulate the dough. It bears the physical, sculptural traces of its maker.
