From the Paper Machete Show at Gallery Lambton 2009


Video Sound Installation at Gallery Lambton with Jane Austin 2010

Paper Machete Norm.mp4

This is about a neighbour whom I liked to visit as a child to watch tv with her while eating cookies and milk. Her name was Helen Behrens and we received Christmas cards from her for a number of years which I used in a large artwork shown at the end of the video. She was very kind but in today's standards she would be considered a racist. This installation is also about the role of women in my area of the world in those times as is shown by the various knitted and crocheted craft items and by the tv show 'I Love Lucy'.
