"Its all been layed out ready for you", red carpet, household paints, pins, 2010
Once again I have taken previously exhibited exhibition elements and tampered further with there identity and meaning.
This red carpet formed part of a plaster cast artwork displayed in Preston, 2009.
Using the carpet in its traditional sense and gloryification as a glamourous entrance to a exhibition opening.
This carpet has now been bastardised and stained for life- as indeed a red carpet would if left long enough. Deliberate marks referencial to a Rauschengerg were flicked, dripped and smeared into the carpets weave. Slicing the carpet and altering its state alongside hanging as apposed to laying were final display considerations for the work.
Twisting and almost torturing the carpet to test its boudaries and its function.
