Clothes Drying, India (Paris 2008)

Togart (NT) Contemporary Art Award 2009

Clothes Drying, India (Paris 2008) is part of an ongoing watercolour series derived from photographs taken of clothes drying on riverbanks from around the world. Sometimes in the hundreds, newly washed clothes lay side by side in an unknown order, a public presentation of private duties. Interest lies in the traces of presence, and what is left behind.
