Description: labour is a challenging and provocative installation which explores notions of identity and social expectation. Impaled, distorted and dismembered, oversized foetal forms emerge from the floor, gasping for air and writhing in discomfort. Fusing modern sculptural methods and emotive subject matter, labour opens up a highly personal space wherein symbolic potential transcends the obvious. What initially appears to be a simple artistic statement on birth and death is able to evoke universal feelings of hope, contentment, self-loathing and shame.
