Bless

Bless, 2020
(cotton muslin, disposable medical needles)
32x39cm


The cap needles are arranged on a muslin cloth forming the word ‘Bless’ which is sometimes used to give comfort and express sympathy. These spare disposable needles are from injections given during IVF treatments and are not immediately recognizable. The delicate texture of the muslin mixed with the thin needles and their shadows gives a sense of fragility and threat at the same time. The word Bless alludes also to resilience and a sense of hope and constant shifting of balance between these states.
