Domestic Goddess explores the inherent elements of ritual, seduction, love and power that reside in the domestic kitchen. The intention for these carfully knitted sculptures is to seduce the viewer, to entice due to their detail and considered construction.
Within Domestic Goddess I hope to create a dialogue around what purpose seduction plays in domestic life, and draws attention to how seduction might relate to popular ideas of gender roles and gender strengths. The choice of colour and material allude to safety and comfort, yet within the sculptures of Domestic Goddess these elements are invested with new references, and are utilised to generate a more challenging discussion.
Seeing and hearing peoples reations to the installation tells me this piece of art works and is doing its job.
