THE DIET CAME TO GRIEF, 2011

The Diet Came To Grief deals with women and dieting, and highlights the ten foods which contribute to the failure of diets. The piece is in the form of a ‘tissue box’ to represent the misery and tears caused by restricting food. Hand stitched monograms on the corner of each tissue read D-I-E-T-S  F-A-I-L.
