A lamentation in three actsA lamentation in three acts' is a ritualistic exploration into the journey of the childhood performer and the consequential hardships of adulthood loss. The work acts as a lamentation, but also a form of catharsis where the childhood costumes of a younger self become disembodied substitutes for the female body. Split into three acts, the work represents a life cycle and each piece within the series plays its own part. Act 2 is a triptych of images that sees the costumes reincarnated beyond their original form. The sculptural draperies act as monuments; dead yet alive, the photographic image provides the costumes with an existence beyond their physical one.
