Lorraine Winn Parker
My work examines our relationships with everyday objects within the domestic space. I am examining the idea of the female identity being subsumed by domestic life and how this can reduce, constrain, and devalue female status and place.
Using found objects and combining them with feminine signifiers, such as hair, I make new hybrid objects that carry within them the relationship of the object and the self.
Repetition and facilitation are repeated throughout the work reflecting the experience of endless domestic labour and accommodations.
Materials used are everyday domestic found objects, coupled with human hair, animal and plant fibres, plaster, concrete, and video and photography.
