Huck Tuck Fold Pack – stage 1
Installation, mixed media, variable size
Hug Tuck Fold Pack – stage 1 is an installation made from textiles, soft materials and objects. During the exhibition period the work undergoes various stages of transformation in which borders between matter, space and bodies liquify as the work is remoulded. In its first stage the installation is taking over the entire gallery floor as a series of 20 sculptural beds. Each bed is adorned with objects, folded blankets, fabrics and cushions that are both assembled aesthetically as a collage of materials and as individual beds designed for sleeping. The objects placed upon the beds suggest a potential performative action; an indication of what follows in the second stage of the work where an audience group of 20 people is invited to take part in an overnight ritual and sleep performance Hug Tuck Fold Pack – stage 2. Impregnated and altered through the performative process the materials are finally transformed into a condensed sculptural form Hug Tuck Fold Pack – stage 3 to remain in the gallery for the duration of the show.
