Memory and identity are important factors within the work of Susan Walsh which ranges from installations to photography and moving image. It is both gallery and site based and incorporates an on-going investigation into basic-needs survival, using the device of either temporary memorial or mini museum.
Container 31 is part of a series of work in which old and new furniture is modified and amalgamated in the creation of hybrid constructions, unique to their time, interlaced with fantasy, functional but not practical. They explore the impact of change and evolution on objects and make visible the collision of past and present experience. These sculptures are containers of the past, vessels in the present, and storage solutions for the future.
