Following on from the artist’s interest in immaterial
labour, these three sculptural objects represent the
invisible work carried out by women. Three types of
broomstick from three cultures (Filipino,
Indonesian, British) are used to make structures
that can catch the wind and spin against the sky.
These objects are loaded with many connotations
such as witchcraft, the impact of the industrial
revolution and domesticity.
