Tissue is an installation of fourteen life-size, handmade figures that echo the silhouette of the artist's body. The figures hang from the ceiling, attach to the walls and fold into corners. They turn gently as viewers brush by, confronting the audience with exactly the same profile from all vantage points. The forms are reminiscent of tissue paper party decorations gone seriously awry.
