song dynasty ○○○

Assorted appliquéd fabrics, copper, paper maché, painted MDF, steel, PVC

song dynasty ○○○ is a costume crafted in an imagined dialogue with my family dining table – an object that has stood sentinel, at the heart of the home, watching us grow. It is a structured costume for five Song members – an outfit for a future family portrait and a growing familial archive. An amphibious leafy beast, it hangs as an oval fabric form scaled in greens, whites and metallics – reminiscent of an ancient Gingham wipe-clean tablecloth, stained with generations of shimmering spills.
