Eliza Cotton’s practise engages with balance, material affiliations and interconnected forms. Her multi-disciplinary practice is supported by a sociological perspective and historical references, established through her BA studies.
A storage box of art pieces, accidentally left to be enveloped by mould and rust, has become the core of the project ‘Things I've had for months and years’
. Decrepit ‘art’ is living, changing and adapting within the storage box, as organisms themselves to constitute a micro ecology of detritus; becoming a Biotope itself.
Objects from, and in reference to this box are reconstituted into instillations of sculpture and painting, fabricated in opposition to Anthropocentrism.
