The material for work here, from which this idea has been drawn, and upon which it is laid, is a collection of offcuts (of leather) from a shoe factory in Norway. The majority had been torn out from sets of piles of skin; and the rest are (usually) cast off, pulled out of play, as they are no longer needed.
This piece is an installation that brings patterned leather from a shoe factory, into use, as its’ major material. This is a result of the collaborative work with this factory.
