MetadataShow full item record
The figure of a small white doll grows from a ball of modelling clay, is cut and sewn shut, and then buried and ‘reborn’, among a nest of white granulated sugar and the dark stain of slut’s wool – the fluffy dust that collects under furniture and along skirting boards. The film explores early childhood memories of secret play during early childhood: locked in a silent room for a rest after lunch, aged 5 years, the artist would sculpt tiny figures from the balls of Plasticine she had hidden in the dust under the piano.
