Help I’ve swallowed my art practise and now I am the size of a house.
The kitchen is covered in instant mash
The bedroom has bears with beans inside
The bathroom has a wooden toilet and a shower that only spits out beans
The garden has a tree that grows red teddy bears
Outside the door is the fierce receptionist.
This is my house, and you may come in.
Bears filled with beans. An edible friend that you can cuddle and chew.
Penny the mushy peas bear
Cemal the chickpea bear
Ruomei the red bean bear
Phoenix the peanut bear
Benny the Borlotti bear
Water closet is an impractical bathroom. The toilet is made from wood and therefor is permeable to juices. The carpet is ready to receive staining. The woollen self-portrait marks the artists territory. It is both a homage to one’s own family and a critique of their hypocrisies and failings. Displaying both shame and comfort.
Hand carved wooden toilet to a 1:1 scale. Accompanied by hand crafted rug, toilet roll cosy and tissue box cover.
