2009/017 | Gross Domestic Product

G.D.P.? Mixed media 2014

Reflecting the essential part women have played in determining the nature, shape and structure of contemporary female role and identity, this work functions as a review of cultural values: What is the real value of Gross Domestic Product? When you tease apart the words, domestic chores, silent endeavours? By using reclaimed household floor covering, held together with a painstaking stitch, I am seeking to look closely at things we take for granted and have forgotten to see, of daily ongoing rituals that give meaning but in themselves become meaningless.
