Mary Trapp’s work attempts to draw you back to water. Through a sculptural practice that incorporates drawing, film and installation; she repeatedly makes us feel wet and spongy in our spaces.

Fixated by the internal waters that fill and spill through our porous bodies, Trapp makes sculptures that replicate the inner pink fleshy tubes that irrigate us. She often uses ‘grotty’ and degenerate materials to make objects that describe the body. Her processes provoke states of collapse that are then stitched, wrapped, and knotted back together in an attempt at nurture.
