This sculpture is part of a body of work entitled Periphery, shown at the James Hockey and Foyer Galleries, UCA Farnham in 2009.
It is an installation made of thousands of pieces of torn black polythene, that are suspended to form a cube that appears to be being tilted by a taxidermied fox standing within it.
'These strangely frozen animal bodies stand at the periphery of painstakingly constructed geometric clouds of consumerist detritus and function as melancholic spectral messengers. They appear trapped, seized, manipulated and controlled. Yet the natural material continues to convey a powerful sense of mystery despite such calculated constraint and formal immobility.' (From D. Ambrose essay 11.2008, that can be found on website claire-morgan.co.uk)
