Fortified

This multi-part exhibition held in 2003 at the Agnes Etherington art Centre in Kingston, ON included partial defensive formations (structures) constructed of fuzzy bricks made of wool and concrete, shimmering swatches of pin encrusted fabric, graphite studies of historical bodices and corsets and a series of hand embroidered images of Murney Towers used historically to Defend the city. (madeĀ  by P.E. Druce on loan from the collection of the City of Kingston).

Informed by the city of Kingston with its abundance of military institutions and related architecture this work equates the defensive and containment qualities of architecture, foundation garments and armour.
