Mayer has said that her work ‘plays with our perception of children as innocents’, and her sculptural dioramas draw parallels between childhood and violence; there’s fear lurking within. Mayer’s homage to artist Louise Bourgeois – the queen of the disquieting familial drama – takes the form of a giant ball of dark material, studded with pins. The artist’s head pokes out from atop a feathered collar, smiling to herself as though delighted with the unspooling disquiet around her.
