Skins

March to May 2020

Throughout the first phase of the UK lock down I worked from a loft space in my family home in Walsall. In an attempt to visualise the gravity of the coronavirus pandemic in which the world was facing I began a durational performance. On a daily basis I would make clay orange skins and each one of these represented one person that had sadly died from the disease. The motif of the orange skin came about from walks taken in the months leading up to the lock down, seeing them strewn across bushes and on the pavements was a regular occurrence.
