Texture based sculpture showing the inhibition of chronic body pain. A culmination of inhibitions I have felt throughout my life, an analysis of constraining factors and body pains and how the body all of a sudden cannot do what it is suppose to or could before. Yet a optimistic approach to the never ending pain. The texture of the textiles are mimiking and drawn from pain, bones, textures within the body. It reflects on positivity in the face of pain through colors. It depicts how I relate to my pain through an optimistic lens, that I carry because the inhibition will not subside. The sculpture focuses on the pain in the ankle area. The sense of losing control, feeling numb, stuck and caught in ones movement. A certain wobbly feeling apears around the ankles which limits walking. The sculpture allows people to feel the pain when stepping into it, without me giving an explanation. longlasting handcrafted techniques are mixed, such as weaving, machine knitting and hand knitting, only made out of reclaimed and repuposed materials, such as foam, cotton, organza, linen, thread and knitted yarns. an exploration of sensitivities.
