Selection from Cocoon Series, 2015-2018.
An enshrouded body imposes a kind of impotence: what covers them intimates clearly and simply a refusal, discouraging voyeurism while immediately inflicting boundaries. Transforming from physical object into physical space, a cocoon becomes an extension of private space, within which one is protected. Power can be restructured and reconstituted: a cocoon is not just fabric, but a partition and a boundary. As with all things, we see only the visible, but what we see is not the sum total of what is.
