This sculpture gives a passing nod to the construction industry and its processes. The concrete bloats and sags inside cardboard boxes, alluding to the corporeal; teeters awkwardly as absurd stacks of concrete objects play with ideas of balance; cracks and breaks as site specific clays produce a fragility; and slumps and disperses to accommodate buoyant, floating objects. The works playfully subvert our preconceptions about concrete as a large scale, geometric, stable and ubiquitous construction material and its artistic use primarily as a support material, as a plinth or footings.
