House of Cards is one of the installations from the New Skin: Exploring Motherhood project. During the documentation and consequent editing process of this expansive project I found myself with a set of abstracted images. Images which cropped body parts, held incomplete scenes and which spoke of the fragmentation I was feeling around motherhood. I used these images as the basis for the House of Cards installation. I created a giant photographic house of cards which acted as a metaphor balancing the fragility of my new identity on a kitchen table.
Above are some installation shots followed by the photographs which backed the playing cards.
