As something of an evocative object, The Nest constructed with barbed wire is suggestive of the nature of uncanny and fetish objects. The object might act as a stand in for thoughts that can’t be expressed and take the place of what cannot be spoken. It hints further towards a complex boundary, perhaps equally attractive and repellant and yet ultimately offering a specific kind of protection. The photograph itself has also been examined as an object in it’s own right. The tension between these objects is toyed with, both suggestive of restrictions, boundaries and the sometimes fine line between pleasure and pain.
