Rachael Thomas and Rachel Charter have been collaborating together for over a year, sharing an interest in mundane materials, lo-fi processes and site responsive installations. 13.11.10 takes the form of a large, high hung tapestry, composed of oil paint, flour and sugar applied directly onto sheets of tin foil. The work rests on the window ledge with an assortment of soap sediments and sugar coated objects.
The simple materials and plain form combine to create a work that not only takes into consideration the window’s architectural characteristics, but also draws upon the window as a space to promote commodities. Although non-functional and fragile, the everyday domestic materials offer connotations of desirable fabrics and cosmetics, with the title referencing a specific time of happening or an important appointment.
