Commissioned by Focus Point to commemorate 10 years of providing services to homeless people. December 12th, 1995 - January 20th, 1996

"THERE WAS AN OLD WOMAN WHO LIVED IN A SHOE"
Installation, 2m x 2m x 40 cm
Shoe, footstool, enamel paint, stencilled lettering

My piece entitled "THERE WAS AN OLD WOMAN WHO LIVED IN A SHOE" re-presents this traditional nursery rhyme. The artwork combines the text of the rhyme with the physical reality of a woman's shoe. This is not a cartoon, 3-storey hobnailed boot replete with roof, door & windows! The sad reality of this nursery rhyme is that the woman's home is the shoe on her foot, which reveals much about her situation.
