Chained to Expectations (April 2019)
20 x 30 x 26 cm
I wanted to experiment with 3D work and continue working with the themes of my previous piece. I decided to craft a pair of hands tied together and bonded by measuring tape. This symbolises how weight and body perception has a hold on the mind that might be suffocating, or imprisoning our freedom. My goal here is to criticise this unhealthy expectation and obsession that seems to paralyse many, and I was inspired by the works of sculptors such as Auguste Rodin and the way he creates intricate hands.
