Once Upon a Time

A selection of human bones are assembled and fixed permanently together using pins, glues and clamps. The poses mimic day to day interactions, fleeting moments with one another. Viewing people's bones separated and then re-configured into different, permanent situations confronts the notion of immortality and the passage of time. The works are born from a childhood of play and learning about the body from a skeleton that was used by my father and grandfather as an anatomical teaching aid.
