Fertility Bed #2, installation, 2014

This bed was outfitted with a set of sheets sewn from book pages. Using erotica, dating advice and the psychoanalysis of motherhood the bed examined the many lenses of a woman's relationship to beds. Visitors were invited to lie or sleep overnight in the bed, inevitably tearing the sheets, but better acquainting them with the sensual components of the installation.

Materials: book pages, thread, pillow, cot

Dimensions: fitted for single mattress, 3.5'x8'
