Love struck – Traitors Gate
This wearable piece of art was created for a performance addressing the issues of Domestic Violence, infidelity and betrayal.
The gates are a scaled replica of Traitors Gate from the Tower of London. The gates are attached to the performer via her back and the whole piece moves on wheels as one. The pomegranate has been used in mythology and art to symbolise female fertility being the only known fruit to bleed. The gates symbolise transition, what has been before is in the past a new future lays ahead.
