On your Feet (Footsie)

This heavy soft sculpture is produced from 20 meters of repurposed rope from a farm, that has been transformed by casting a clear pair of male human feet upon both of its’ ends in Epoxy resin. Displayed differently every time it is installed, the form of the sculpture can be modified by the exhibition spaces in which it is shown. The piece may be curled up upon itself, hung from the ceiling or between two walls, or attached to additional hooks/installation elements. By replacing human legs with and oversize braided ball of woven string, the work invites us to reflect on the rope as a metaphor for the human body as a whole.
