"Last Mattress" - Object Art

September 3rd - October 23rd, 2010


The Last Mattress.

This is the place where they slept every day, for months or years, the place which bore their body weight, agony, solitude, the place in which they woke and dreamt, the place where they spent their last moment.

When I see this mattress I feel the traces of their lives, I imagine how they lived, and feel compelled to express these personal histories.

For me my home is where my mattress is, where I rest and feel comfortable. This most meagre possession will provide my last comfort, it will be my home.
