Fetishes for Uncertain Times: initially developed from research into older forms of magic, amulets, talismans, fetishes that people may resort to in times of uncertainty such as those we are currently experiencing. My fetish objects are constructed from off cuts of fabrics purchased in the U.K. and Turkey and embellished with amulet devices, shiny objects, nazars, buttons and embroidery. Here I am displaying them as floor based sculpture.
