The Integrity Installation is part of a process dealing with personal and territorial integrity.
Inspired by my own role as a mother boundaries and overstepped boundaries are an important aspect of my artistic theme. I consider abuse or misuse, reuse and being used in my work as ways of ignoring the integrity of the Other: human, animal, territory, object/substance.
Teabags have been part of my work since 2010, where I used them in a work that dealt with rape and resulting pregnancy. The fragility of teabags and the state of being “used” intrigued me. Combining teabags with wire is like a play on the opposing qualities of violence, harshness, masculinity and femininity, vulnerability, domestic comfort.
As harsh and violent razor wire may look, it’s shadows cast by strong spot lights onto the ceiling give way for dreams, hopes, future.

Installation consisting of three razor wire sculptures with used teabags, vegetable mesh, thread and lights.

1. The quality of being honest and having strong moral principles;
2. moral uprightness
3. The state of being whole and undivided: “territorial integrity”
