United Kingdom, 1965
Thesis: Chance, Sabotage and Failure. The 3 Likeliest Muses.
The Conclusion. No. 1-3 (We imagine Sisyphus smiling)
The graduation work “The Conclusion. No. 1 - 3” constitutes a sculptural and video installation in the form of a triptych that speaks of Sisyphean futility, of conscious awakenings and of finally being set free. The installation takes the form of: bricks labouriously stacked in a 1m x 1.5m cube; a TV screen showing a video depicting the awakening/awareness of futility and a quilt signifying the realisation that, despite everything, all is well. The works stand alone yet more importantly spur each other on until they find themselves back at their beginnings. Shoulder to stone, resuming the push. We must imagine Sisyphus smiling...
