'Be My Parent' and 'In Vitro'

Abstract

Be My Parent and In Vitro are both works made following the experience of two failed rounds of IVF. 'Be My Parent' is a series of hand-stitched portraits of prospective sons and daughters, seen in an adoption agency brochure, protected and incased by white circular frames. 'In Vitro I & II' are two delicate and mystical works, created simply, by piercing minute holes into pieces of dark grey card; they are mounted onto light boxes where the tiny holes transform into a glowing constellation.
