These pieces, wherein I use pillow forms as stand-ins for my own physical shortcomings are simultaneously a matter of conspicuous consumption and transformation.
The duality suggested by the pillow form allows for multiple suggestions and meanings, from seduction and comfort, to bulbous grotesquerie. In so doing, they investigate ideas of expectation, perfection, and realness.
However, it is not just about my perspective. Entire systems and industries have been devised to cripple women emotionally and financially through ever-shifting targets, and frothy breathless, language. I repudiate these ridiculous notions through the use of forms that though sloppy, sidle up to sensuality. Because really, who wants a tiny, hard pillow?
