In this on-going project, I scrape up squashed animals which have been run over and model them in clay. Very detailed, fragile bones, flimsy feathers, sunken fur, inviting one to peer closely – the delicate handwork is enticing, attractive but also a hideous tableau – a squished animal. The intense attention the roadkills receive whist they are modelled imbues the work with an awareness that someone has spent hours poring over a rotting cadaver, this plays a role in the way the viewer experiences the work. That the models are earthenware lends them something of a monument, an ode to the animal.
