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 Her multi-disciplinary practice is supported by a sociological perspective and historical references, established through her BA studies.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.
