Blow me!


She reminds me a bit to liliana porter, but no to artist are the same. Rebecca Wilson takes familiar objects, or the one’s in your grandma’s house and alters the perception with the material or scale situation and makes the viewer question the value of the once familiar item.
This particular collection focuses on perfume bottles and ceramic figures merged in one.

Tacky collectible perfume bottles are referenced in the ‘Blow Me’ collection. These pieces show a new direction in my work, and the introduction of a new material and set of processes. A collection of slipcast and stained porcelain figurative ‘bottles’ is complimented by a number that are cast in solid glass in delicious colours to highlight the redundancy of their primary function. These objects have become marginalised from their intended purpose as decanters of sickly scents, and now stand redundant in function, but rich in purpose as covetable ‘collectibles’. The non-functional glass and porcelain pieces are finished off with delicately knitted atomiser bulbs salvaged from vintage perfume bottles. The patina comes from of years of being squeezed by greasy fingers and the disfigured and perished rubber interiors further allude to the now redundant function.”
