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).
