Installation “She was asking for it”

· A big wall Medusa-panel: 223 cm x 140 cm x 5 cm consisting of 9 separate float glass panels

· 12 sculptures with heads of anonymous women, each of them placed on a stand. Each of the 12 sculptures: +- 30 cm x 25 cm x 5 cm.

Each stand is 130 cm x 30 cm x 10 cm (12 stands in total) and each of them has a small panel with a typical victim blaming quote like “She was flirting”, “Know your place” ect.

Photo credit JL Elias, Kerkhof.

In this installation I explore the resonance between the Medusa Myth and how our contemporary society treats female victims: What causes us (both men and women) to blame women in one way or another who have been abused or raped? I hope that my installation will trigger many visitors to help upending victim-blaming narratives that heap sympathy on the perpetrator.

For each part of this installation I started with a unique glass firing process where copper and corroding chemicals are fused with the tin side of float glass. Starting from the traces that are formed during this process I proceed with a number of techniques- slumping, kiln fired painting, gilding, engraving…

Title: Taffy Trails

My work was unable to be made due to the virus however I have created the pieces in 3d on SolidWorks and rendered them in Keyshot. The dimensions of the yellow and coral pieces are: 250mm by 120 mm with a wall thickness of 40mm

The blue piece would be: 350mm by 160mm with a wall thickness of 60mm

“Though this collection is currently digital, it reflects my love for the hot shop and desire to learn and develop techniques. With an aim to enjoy myself, I pulled coloured glass like taffy which is added as a trail. These pieces are thick-walled to allow the detailed colour to ‘dance’.”

Installation “She was asking for it”

· A big wall Medusa-panel: 223 cm x 140 cm x 5 cm consisting of 9 separate float glass panels

· 12 sculptures with heads of anonymous women, each of them placed on a stand. Each of the 12 sculptures: +- 30 cm x 25 cm x 5 cm.

Each stand is 130 cm x 30 cm x 10 cm (12 stands in total) and each of them has a small panel with a typical victim blaming quote like “She was flirting”, “Know your place” ect.

Photo credit JL Elias, Kerkhof.

In this installation I explore the resonance between the Medusa Myth and how our contemporary society treats female victims: What causes us (both men and women) to blame women in one way or another who have been abused or raped? I hope that my installation will trigger many visitors to help upending victim-blaming narratives that heap sympathy on the perpetrator.

For each part of this installation I started with a unique glass firing process where copper and corroding chemicals are fused with the tin side of float glass. Starting from the traces that are formed during this process I proceed with a number of techniques- slumping, kiln fired painting, gilding, engraving…

GLASS GRADUATES OF 2020 (The Lockdown Exhibition)

Title of Exhibition: “GLASS GRADUATES OF 2020”

Glass Graduates 2020 have so much to show in their CGS online exhibition!

Every year the Contemporary Glass Society produces a Graduate Review for glass artists graduating that year. There are also prizes for excellence given alongside the Review. The Contemporary Glass Society (CGS) is the UK’s foremost organisation for supporting established artists, and up-and-coming makers. It was established in 1997 to represent the interests of glassmakers within the national and international community, and to promote contemporary glass in the wider art world.

Sadly this year because of the corona virus pandemic, the world has shattered for graduates. Their educational establishments have been shut prematurely; they have not been able to access workshops and studios to complete their final pieces of work or to even remove their work. Consequently their degree marks have been based on their ‘concepts’ rather than the work itself and their end of year Graduate Shows have not taken place.

Because of this, CGS has been unable to produce the 2020 Graduate Review.

However, we couldn’t leave students who were graduating in the lurch so we have launched Glass Graduates of 2020 (the Lockdown Exhibition.)

This is our first Graduate Show and we are excited to share graduates’ work with the public and glass making community. Despite the restrictions placed upon them, graduates have produced a dazzling and wide ranging demonstration of their ability and creative approach to contemporary glass.

Although we are not producing a Graduate Review this year, 2020 students will be invited to join students from 2021 in a combined production next year. Glass artists are always creative in making the best of the worst!

This show is highlighted on the CGS website for the month of August 2020.

Launched on:1st August 2020
