'Dirt: The filthy reality of everyday life' @ the Wellcome Collection, London


Focusing on different locations at various points in time, this unique exhibition covers not only London.

Particular exhibits inspired my work, such as Susan Collis' Waltzer (2007). It looks like just an ordinary household broom propped against the wall in the corner of one room. Look closer and there appears to be specks of paint and dirt on it, as we might expect. Looking closer still these specks turn out to be small precious stones and jewels.
