My installation Mater Memoriam is a celebration of all women and the knowledge they possess and share with their sisters, daughters, grand-daughters, nieces, friends and the wider female community as they have since ancient times.

All of the objects in this installation relate in one way or another to women I know and have known, from whom I have learned and learned about.

Much of my recent work aims to address the way women have been marginalised within the human story. I have conducted extensive research and have learned of the pivotal role women have played, and continue to play, in all cultures.

With this installation I have chosen to move away from the museum aesthetic in which objects are carefully labelled and laid out in a classified order. Instead I have created the aesthetic of my studio, where objects may appear to be jumbled and chaotic, however, each piece has been carefully chosen and placed, so that they may be seen in a fresh context and create a new narrative.
