Stations Of the pig
Stations of the Pig examines a personal fascination with Catholic Orthodox belief systems and imagery through the use of sculptural and printing practices. Inspired by classical iconography, this exhibition deconstructs and re-frames narratives of selected biblical text.
Stations of the Pig reflects aspects of the history, stigma and lack of understanding associated with biblical text, particularly those concerning the swine. Contradiction and misconception rather than the literal word is embraced, observation and self-reflection is used to form these morphed creations.
Printed on sewing patterns to symbolise the structure of the church, an order that is set, a methodology that must be followed in order to reach an ultimate divinity, heaven or hell. I encourage the viewer to deconstruct the deconstructed and perhaps question the text which so many devote their lives to.
‘Give not which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn and rend you’. Matthew 7:6
