A Play On Words
Currently, I have become intrigued by language and although language ideology is a relatively new dimension to the work, it is one I have investigated in this current work A Play On Words (2011).
This work is an interrogator of language, its power and authority and the impact it has on the individual to create barriers of class and gender.
A linguistic sparring between viewer and the work occurs causing questions to be asked but leaving the response to personal interpretation.
My intention is to bring a sense of lived experience of language within a quiet subtle space.
This echoes a desire to make work that creates an intimate, reflective space leaving a residue of lived experience within the viewer long after they have departed.
