Image 2 is from my 'Fragile' installation, this was made up of 300 PMN-2 landmines which were installed on the lawn outside the Holburne Museum of Art in Bath. They were aligned to reference and resemble a military cemetery.

The last image today is a site specific piece of work made for the Siobhan Davies Studios in London. Referencing Louise Fitzjames, a Ballerina predominant in mid 19th Century France whom was likened to a 'dancing asparagus in battle of the vegetables'. 'We Must Fit In' is made up of porcelain anorexic dancing asparagus fixed into the stage of a dining table. It's looking at the predominance of eating disorders with dance and the sad fact that one must look the correct shape to be even granted an audition.
