For this project I considered the implications of Jacques Lacan’s ownership of Gustave Courbet’s L'Origine du monde (1866). I produced a silk-print is based a re-construction of a work by André Masson that was commissioned by Jacques Lacan and used to cover over Courbet’s work; to both conceal and reference the painting. The silk work was given to my mother as a gift and worn to the opening of the exhibition, Covers.. My aim in this work was to uncover and re-cover the feminine subject at the centre the event.
