'Cut Flowers #2

Loughborough University Arts Degree Show

June 2019

(65 hours over 10 days)

I draw references from feminist literature, and 'Cut Flowers #2' acts as homage to Charlotte Perkins Gilman’s ‘The Yellow Wallpaper’ (1892).

The story is a collection of journal entries written by a woman who, as a form of treatment for her 'slight hysterical tendencies', was locked in a room to aid her recovery. During that time, the woman becomes obsessed with the 'repulsive yet alluring yellow wallpaper', and believes there are people living behind it.

 In 'Cut Flowers #2' I transformed the exhibition space into my domestic home/artist's studio. The performance could only be viewed from above or peeped into through holes I had cut in a cloth wall. In this performance, the viewer becomes the person living in the walls, whispering behind the fabric and tentatively peeping in.
