Trapping by Claire Paquet
Flea Market Gallery
Begins Sunday 25 January 2015

I am fascinated by the daily rituals that govern our lives and the coping mechanisms we use to feel in control of our existence. I imagine that there is a little bit of magic in every repeated, nearly unconscious action that helps us get through our days, and I am compelled to try and exist in this area between the daily and the spiritual. Trappings represents the beginnings of an exploration into an everyday ritual space – the bedside table. Through collection, craft, and reflection, I am building up the trappings of a world that revolves around the bedside table.
