Stool, Towel

Beasley, Becky
'Hide', 'Infirme' and 'Stool, Towel' I was thinking a lot about what I call Kafka's 'feral works' at the time, 'The Burrow' in particular which I think is a great parable about anxiety and architecture. I am also interested in the fact that there is no behind, or inside, or underneath, to the image, but representational illusion confuses one into imagining that there is. For me this is to do about art's cadaverous quality. Becky Beasley
