My work explores memory and loss, ideas surrounding the essence of something that once existed but is no longer there. This piece was a site specific piece for Dis locate and explores these themes within the context of the exhibition space itself.
Using the catalogues and waste post left at the site from the previous VW business, I have cast in paper pup, the negative impression of a VW Golf MK2 car seat. The paper pulp retains the textural surface of the seat fabric and the shape in negative relief , leaving us with a sense of the object but remaining changed and at odds with our perception of what we should expect.
This piece alludes to the impression of the space and what it was once used for but also of a personal memory of a MK2 golf that I part exchanged at the same garage 10 years ago.
