Rite de passage: what is left of me (2017) (Latex, ice, chain, steel, thread.)
Davison’s practice explores the liminal, the ephemeral, sex, feminism, abjection, disgust and motherhood. Davison aims to create an aesthetic representing these concepts through the use of materials which are often temporary or in a liminal state. The work never remains the same from one viewing to the next, inviting the viewer to a unique moment in the life of that work.
In ‘Rite de passage: what is left of me’ Davison has created an installation addressing the liminal period experienced during a rite of passage, in this case the experience of entering motherhood. An exploration of time and space, reminiscent of the corpus which once was full, slowly empties into a burgeoning sling underneath itself.
Always in the act of becoming.
