Swimmer and Wall, 1993

Bronze, 8X3X14cm

While swimming into an invisible wall, from which she is mounted, a small painted bronze cast of a young swimmer is marked by blood, that is execrated from her head and also seen from between her legs [depending on the angle the work is viewed from]. The work was made in New York City, while reading and relating to the book Mother Daughter Revolution - from Betrayal to Power, which explores the writings and researches of Carol Gilligan and her colleagues. Several years later [in 2008…], when the term 'invisible ceiling' is in use - I told a journalist [who didn’t hear/ write it] that "I hope to carry an invisible crown of glass on my head "... one day.
