BOXES beyond borders

Endless Beauty

Agatha Hutton
Singapore 2001

My work deals with the femininity of a woman, as she struggles not only to be part of society’s work force, but also to maintain her appearance as changes are brought about through aging.  Instead of the small wooden box, I have cast a larger box from wax, not only to enhance its appearance but also to give that sense of being alive.  The box itself is wrapped up with skin and it is this same skin that are stacked inside the box in repetitive folds.  The wrapped box together with the folded repetitive skin represents the struggles of a modern woman in the community, to which she has, to balance between society and the family, and yet maintain her >endless beauty for society.
