Earth to Earth, 2010
Part of the exhibition Decay, with Kevin Dagg, Marielle Van Den Bergh and Mels Dees
This piece was cast in rammed earth from a mould made from a real pregnant woman.
As I cast it in soil, I added in seed potatoes that steadily grew during the one month exhibition.
By the end of the exhibition the potatoes were forming leaves and stems, and responding well to the light.
The whole form was protected by the wooden greenhouse frame carved in text describing germination, growth, blossoming process, culminating in decay and death.
