Monsters of the Deep
Graduation collection (2013) is based on phobias, it is particularly focused on phobias related to water, which inevitably incorporate paraphernalia associated with living water – sea creatures and seaweeds. The collection is made up of 7 initial pieces. This collection explores some of the feelings associated with water phobia, specifically from the perspective of the sufferer. It aims to reflect panic, pain, fear of death and drowning. Series of sculptural body pieces replicate the anxiety often found within phobias so they restrict movements, challenge notion of comfort and suppress breathing. Collection ‘Monsters of the Deep’ creates grim and ghastly atmosphere, emphasize the details and symbols of death as it is the most common urge of phobias to exist.
