For the Protection project I have been thinking about a parents protection, how the relationship is quite fragile but can be overpowering. I want to have a soft material in a shape that’s guarding something small and precious(like Christine Borland’s piece above). I’ve tried a maquette, using calico with delicate wire. I would like to have text written on the material, like verbal protection as well as physical but who knows!
I’ve always been interested in Loiuse Bourgeouis, I read Runaway girl which helped me understand her work more. I like how her work symbolises relationships and feelings towards people . I think it’s appropriate for my work.
For the 2D part I think Im going to do a collage or a series of them over lapping, that’s all I’ve go so far!
