Devotionals

Devotionals is a series exploring the tradition of personal ritual objects, which
support a vast system of beliefs. As cultural values change, these small tokens of reassurance do not disappear, but adjust to new rituals and new conceptual structures. The miniature sculptures of Devotionals series represent a hybrid system of beliefs,
a mash-up of cultural expectations of women and women’s expectations of themselves. Sex magazines and dolls, twerking and Barbie videos — these opposites are forced into one pseudo-religious structure in Devotionals.
