REBIRTH (2018)

 

Mixed-media installation: found objects (meter box, illegal wheat paste posters and abortion flyers folded into flowers), cables, electric wires, paint, cable ties

2000x1300x1580 mm

 

In this mixed-media installation a typical inner-city scene, that of an abandoned power-box covered in illegal wheat paste posters, is re-imagined as a type of a shrine that grotesquely juxtaposes femininity and masculinity, life and death. Found posters and flyers that promises ‘safe and pain-free abortions’ and ‘penis enlargements’ are folded into flowers, thereby transforming, reclaiming and ‘re-birthing’ the scene of decay.
