Contact Regarding Availability

The Minefield is one of a series of sculptural objects from The Weapons of Mass Consumption series created by Aideen Barry. In her Dystopian Domestic investigations the artist bastardizes the familiar domestic cleaning object with that of a weapon. The artist was diagnoised with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder in 2006 and since then has been exploring the nature of this uncanny illness through a playful manipulation of forms that combine the familiar and the threating in an unhomely / das unheimlich fashion. The Uncanny ( Freud's das unheimlich) are manipulated by the artist and used as a tool in expressing human behaviour in the strange area between amusement and discomfort; creating humour and tension.
