Unnamed - Uncensored
For this project we had to be secretive with our work thus we made this bunker which we had to build it, work in it and take the walls down after 3 weeks.
My first idea was to made my bunker with strings made out of wool which I felt I can use it later on to a different idea.
I wanted a hospital themed bunker thus the colours of the wool are
symbolizing blood which I had 2 ideas either have both walls made out of wool or make one side made out of white sheet symbolizing the hospital's bed. Other classmates just used bedsheets or any other material/fabric so they have there bunker done. I wanted to have a theme and use something different.
One of my classmate mention that my idea reminds him of an artist called Chiharu Shiota . She is a Japanese installation artist which the work is like webs of threads or hoses, she links abstract networks connecting with everyday objects such as keys, windows, dresses, shoes, boats and suitcases.
Her work is remarkable and definitely inspirational to make bigger, think bigger.
I sketched an idea taken from her work and my previous work's aspects and ideas called Perfection.
I really liked her idea of an exhibition called Dialogue from DNA, I thought I could use the idea in a humoristic way creating a woman's private parts attach red strings to sex toys (dildos) or to man's private parts made out of ceramic or metal or plaster. I still don't know how can I describe it or give a reason why ,but it is a sexual.
I ALWAYS wanted to work on a bigger scale but as a student/artist there are some issues that I come across to which in this situation money and I have the feeling of complete lost are huge issues and I am quite sure a lot artists have had this problem.
I was running out of time,ideas and money. So I could I finish my bunker and create.
I hidden the woollen side with bedsheets and I started stabling the wool that I tied up and I tried to make shape of a vagina and period blood.
The project was left unfinished from lack of materials and time.
