Irregular Balance is an experimental project, attempting to interrupt binaries between the organic and the inanimate, nature and 'man', carrier bags and tools, the beautiful and the ugly, the straight and the twisted. I trialled materials such as pins, potatoes (with rhizome roots sprouting), string and medical paraphernalia like tape. I also explored the forms taken by arboreal constructions & deconstructions in local parks around London.
Through the oscillatory disentanglement and reconstitution of a dilapidated sewing machine, constrictions of time, the body and cultivations of nature were reinterpreted during a performative piece. I untangled the twine encompassed Singer sewing machine and re-worked it with pinned rose-bush leaves from a graveyard. I unravelled and reconstructed while speaking about some of the ideas behind the materials and performance for an MA seminar.
Photographic works made next to St Paul's Church Yard, Deptford and in Haggerston Park, London. Performative piece shared at London College of Communication, Elephant & Castle. (Spring, 2019).
