Gorda (2015)

Wearable sculpture

La Gorda is a textile form of exaggerated silhouettes, embellished with lumps of sequins, beads and fringe clusters. It is a tool to explore what happens when an uncanny sensuous body is introduced into a public space. It attracts movement and reaction, as viewers attempt to discern what this amorphous sparkly body represents. Ultimately disclosing their personal views of foreign bodies.
