EMILY GARFOOT 

SPACE AND FORM

Objects and spaces are defamilarised to challenge the traditional perception of the home as a feminine domain. Reducing the tabletop arrangement to the cloth that it would sit upon refers to the feminine vessel that cannot be seen; the traces that are left behind speak of a female presence that might once have occupied the space. Space and form presents scenes in which objects are freed and removed from their everyday function to speak of something other. Garfoot has arranged them in a way that allows them to adapt to a new aesthetic and reject the natural expectation.
