“Rubber Wall”: installation

Downen1s installation focuses on a 1965 linoleum floor pattern and its intricate, arabesque design. Made from hand-cut inner tubes and sheet rubber, the pattern climbs the wall, twisting, tangling and de-constructing its own logic into sinister, visual poetry. The work combines the artist1s memories of her childhood home with ideas of the symbiotic relationship between architecture and the human body.
