ARTEFACTUAL

Artefactual is distinct but related works that relocate female resistance. The work enlists Cycladic, 3D-scanned and appropriated female forms to excavate female power through shifts in scale and materials. They are fully encased, erased, and discordantly ancient and contemporary.  Forestalling action requires work (in the physics sense) and the mechanics of restraint—plastic, metal, architecture, webbing—are sufficient only temporarily.
