Part of the show Why is my age important? The title of the show queries the need for an age of the artist to be supplied in the application /proposal process. 
The site specific work fills the space and embodies the ageing form and a posthuman feminist view of time and gender from new and found materials. The work is shaped from ‘king and queen’-sized foam mattresses. The work transforms sheets of foam into a series of large wall based forms which hover between painting and sculpture.
The large foam installation shows the physical and mental embodiment of the abject, ‘waiting’ and the ageing body. Temporality, the progression of past, present and future is inherent, with materials discolouring over time and gravity taking over form and identity in the same way that it does with an ageing, sagging body.
