Suspended (2018)

Nylon, wood, glass, metal, ceramics.

In Suspended I crocheted 15 pairs of tights, stripped and tied into a new yarn, into cylindrical, bulbus tubes, a form I first began creating in Surface. These tubular reimagined tights hung from the ceiling encasing readymades questioning how domestic objects are risen to art objects, whilst demonstrating how crocheting can become sculptural. The encasing of readymades within handmade tubes, is also a commentary on what is widely accepted within the gallery – readymades are common place and accepted whereas textiles positioning in the gallery is long disputed.
