A Strong Ache


"A Strong Ache", 2010. (partial installation view, at Jackman Gallery, in the exhibition Ten-Part Net Trap). Plastic coat-hangers, aluminium tubing, metal swivels, nylon monofilament, electric fan (not shown). 250cm high x 450cm diameter


"A Strong Ache" is assembled from multiples of an everyday object - coat-hangers (of which the title is an anagram). Attached together in ways determined by their own shape, they build geometric forms which are themselves assembled into a giant mobile. Moving gently and continuously through space, they evoke a range of allusions, from the microscopic to the planetary.
