Divested Supports
Jemima Lucas

Through the combined use of industrial, natural and construction materials, Jemima Lucas de-bunks the nature of support structures by restraining the functionality of objects. Industrial hooks suspended in an impenetrable block of resin, a spreader bar hoisted after the moments of impact, chains set in ice, ominously awaiting the ravishes of gravity. These materials align with concepts of restraint, lost autonomy and time suspended, whilst the simultaneous presence of dripping water indicates a movement of time and decay. Conceptually, these displays can be related the experience of one’s own body.
