Workshop with Deirdre on Monday including a tour of the exhibition by the gallery curator focusing on the display and hanging of different pieces. Majority of day spent making a paper model of piece including 21 ‘pockets’ symbolising the 21 handbags the average 30 year old woman is reported to own. First of all I wrote a number of ideas on each pocket looking at consumerism, recycling, history of bags and pockets, play on pocket expressions (out of pocket, pocket money etc).
Experimenting with an arc of pockets hung from a pillar:
