mad hatters tea party, 2019
In ‘Mad Hatters Tea Party’ the viewer begins by reading the tiny hand-stitched text found on each of the individual dolls house plates. The words describe how contemporary society views food, with vegetarianism and veganism becoming mainstream, and where supermarkets stock a vast array of plant-based foods. However, as the text continues, one begins to realise that a woman is revealing the heart-breaking experience of a long standing eating disorder that began in her youth. The mirror forms a disturbing distraction, making it difficult to concentrate on the discomforting words.
