She's Pregnant Again

Wilkes, Cathy
Cathy Wilkes positions, presents and arranges objects drawn from domestic and industrial environments, and studies the language and iconography of such items in their new-found order. She explores human agency and labour, and her large assemblages mainly reference the feminine body and mind. Banal,everyday objects assume a greater collective identity as they are positioned in a seemingly chaotic arrangement, echoing the concept of the 'ready-mades', where existing objects were adopted to reflect and critique human endeavour.
