Phantoms of Form; A Scaffolding

Manifesting as an ongoing project, Phantoms of Form takes as it’s central point the idea of the “other” woman. The protagonist is a female figure, that has been devised to enable a distance. She is a ghost, a shadow, She is there but not present. The “other” woman is currently a composite of the architect Eileen Grey (1878-1976), the artist Barbara Hepworth (1903-1975) as well as the instigator, Eleanor Duffin. The life and designs of all women are used as a collaboration. The project adopts some of it’s framework from fan fiction. This iteration, titled “A Scaffolding”, focuses on a cast of the artists’ hand, found on the table at Hepworth’s studio in St Ives.
