The Scale of Justice


In The Scale of Justice (2016), the artist becomes a traditional ‘beam scale’, balancing hanging baskets from her arms and feet. Against the jewel-coloured backdrop of sapphire pink, the baskets fill up and overflow with luscious green veg while we watch as her balance and composure are increasingly tested, her corporeal and psychological limits measured.  (Text by Josephine Skinner, Stills Gallery, Australia)
