ABOUT FFION

Just In Case – this body of work involves a reinvestigation of these (in) significant items which derived from the neurosis of all the items I carry around in my bag. I have used casting techniques to make a plaster duplication of this stuff. The absurdity of making more of what we already have is evident in this method, addressing both mass production, and excess. The new work has been assembled as a topology of tabletop objects. Many artists have been inspirational to this process, but Todd Mclean’s careful organisation of things, and Rachel Whiteread’s method of plaster casting deserve a mention.
