'Cheap' Exhibition at local second hand shop 2013.
Everyday in domestic settings cruelty, violence and violation happen.
Advertising persuades us that domestic bliss is achieved through the aspiration, purchase and possession of objects. Wealth, vanity and fashion dictate the longevity of these objects.
As a designer 'Cheap' uses and manipulates this discarded design legacy, second hand ceramic figures are positioned as characters, victims in a portrayal of life and imperfection.
