Abstract

This work visually and purposefully makes reference to Hirst’s iconic piece which places a halved cow in two glass tanks. In the context of this piece, Creamer Divided, the familiarity with the original has been reconfigured to expose several junctures of new meaning. The work aims to question identity and hierarchies in respect of tradition and material values. It is not uncommon to find actual animals portrayed in art practice but there is a distinct absence of this format within material specific disciplines. Instead we operate within mimetic structures whereby it is commonplace to experience reality through imitation. These objects such as the cow creamer, utilised in the piece, contain complexities that provide a juncture for critical re-examination.
