I'm so lucky to get the view from my studio that I have. Sometime Flake 99, Sometimes drama.
It's taken forever to decide what to do with the dirty knickers that were knocking around the studio but a trip to Michael Guiney's in Cork City centre gave me the idea. What better than an excessively decorated table cloth as the background? It's designed to give a sense of opulence ("Fine Dining" written in copperplate on the label) but is of spun plastic, not linen. It's badly made, the sides not parallel - or even straight, the scalloped edging misaligned on the corners. Disposable richness pretending permanence, designed to be thrown away at the first hint of a stain. So here we keep it, stained by the dirtiness of the sprawled knickers. Suture stitches are used where the knickers have been cut; padding stitch at times where there is an overlap of layers. Anatomy of the Perfectly Dispensable was first shown at the Things Daiktai exhibition
