Each of these sculptures create visual narratives of my chronic pain. When I experience a heaviness in my body the clay is pushed from underneath itself, teared in response to sharpness, rolled upon itself when I feel a builed up of pressure…
This cathartic process allowed me to externalise the internal and forced me to instantly describe the pain istead of reacting to it.
I later filmed the process of making the sculptures allowing the responsive nature of clay & the body to communicate my pain experience.
