Entry Description:

Dimensions: 366 x 366 x 275cm.
Treehouse is a life-size porcelain replica that uses an iconic image of childhood as a way to explore the nature of nostalgia and the in/authenticity of memory. The act of casting is a symbolic gesture, it freezes a moment in time, recording and preserving forms and events that are impossible to re-live. This work implicates the viewer, reflecting back the personal histories, desires and anxieties brought to it.
