Before "The Rachel"


Immortality and Rebirth



The Ouroboros is an ancient symbol depicting a serpent eating it's own tail, it represents the continuous cycle of life, death and rebirth - the renewal of life and the concept of eternity. Here the Armadillo Lizard rolls up into a ball when frightened, in which it takes its tail in its mouth, allowing itself to be protected by thick scales, becoming the "real" Ouroboros.

Club Cool





I've been working with these pig snouts since November now, trying to arrange them in various different ways. Either producing multiples of these rhinestoned objects and making them into a disco ball, putting them on turntables, trying to "activate" (I hate that word) them in one way or another. For the January Interim show I placed them atop tall metal rods, implying the ideas encompassed within George Orwell's Animal Farm (1945). Pigs reigning superior, standing on their hind legs above the rest of us - Four Legs Good, Two Legs Bad! In theory, the idea worked, yet the fabrication of the piece didn't work in favour of the objects themselves.

Andie Macario (a student also at Wimbledon College of Art) pretty much saved the day asking me if I could somehow transform these objects into masks, to wear as part of a performance. To make them a little less disgusting and a little more seductive, I injected a little femininity into the idea: A velvet surface to protect the face against the rough edges of the snout, which had previously been a breeding ground for small, vile grubs (soon eradicated with good old hairspray) and by attaching a ribbon fastening.

These photographs were taken in haste, so I apologise for the poor quality -  but you get the idea.
Proper documentation of the snouts as both objects and costume are coming soon.
