Udder nonsense

Having way too much fun with the relationship between udder and utter [a word I tend to utterly overuse].   This clay mould is ready to cast.  I really enjoy the strings in the background looking like thin streams of milk – I’d been thinking more elaborately of streams of white silicon – but maybe strings are able to do the job just as effectively.  IMG_4733

Coming up: Creaturely Feeling, The Dax Centre Melbourne

Opening on Monday 13th July – Creaturely Feeling at the Dax Centre.  Curated by Caroline Wallace, this exhibition is part of the Animal Publics: Emotions, Empathy and Activism conference at Melbourne University.  The exhibition will feature a few of my ‘flesh lumps’ series, and I’ll be talking about these little sculptures in my presentation at the conference on the same day.

The exhibition also features works by Trish Adams, Andre Brodyk, Catherine Clover, Kate James, Susie Marcroft and Elizabeth Presa.
