Stefanie Ferguson and Flora
05_Do you wanna build a woman
Inspired by the theme Nature/Nurture this work is a collaboration between mother, daughter & 'village'. The title takes inspiration from my daughter's favourite movie 'Frozen' as I watch her grow into her own person. The form represents two works: the outer surface represents her growth from child to
woman, whilst the inner form (womb) represents my grief and loss at her growing up. The materials used are collected on nature walks from all the families that have become our 'village' on the coast. This represents how they have helped shape not just my daughter but me as a mother as I too continue to grow.
