Photo Description:
Mixed media, "Here I used a group of paper swans as a metaphor for a functional nuclear family. I was particularly interested in the allocation of roles according to gender in other works that I had made for the project, but this is something which has been circumvented here, because gender cannot be identified. The box was used as container to reinforce the title of the piece and to emphasise a sense of claustrophobic domesticity. Work in this piece, comes in the form - parentage."
