Resisting the Lullaby

Through the use of image, text, sound and architectural alterations to the gallery this work marked a site of contention between the private self and authoritarian, divisive and disciplinarian ideologies to which culture can subject us.

Photocopies taken from enlarged images of childhood, posted daily one on top of the other, were seen through a sheet of glass hung between two pillars of the gallery. Linguistic symbols taken from the etymology for the word lullaby and painted on to the glass drew attention to the operation of power manifest in language, the church and state.
