Tapestry and cast work

This artwork was produced for an exhibition entitled 100 Plates. The exhibition theme centered around the importance of useful objects in making meaning, such as plates. They are both representational and functional. The artwork makes playful use of elements that remind me of 1970’s Afrikaner society such as the tapestry, the decorative plate and the sheep’s tongue.
