poppet for the queen of swords

160 x 40 cm, fabric, unglazed ceramic, threads, goldenrod, filling, various herbs, 2022

In folk magic, a poppet is made to represent a person, and link them in sympathetic magic. 

To me making art is also an act of devotion, so I made this poppet in the name of certain qualities and matters of concern I have for communicating with art, speaking through it and displaying my work in a place like Sammlung Falckenberg. It is wearing ceramic masks imitating raw feelings of not belonging, and holding among a few other things a bundle of goldenrod.
