 Animal bodies: Echidna / Human

Materials: plaster, glass, thread, wax.

 

An installation comprised of vessels-like forms. The first is a series of casts of holes, left in the sand by echidna’s digging with their snouts for ants and earthworms.   The second are glass forms, cast from lumps of clay pressed into my palm; and spindle-like forms wrapped in thread.  Both animal and human forms show something of a primal gesture, proper to the snout and the face, the palm and the fingers.   Both reveal something proper to culture – echidna culture, human culture.
