Materials: Lionella Pearl

Since the early nineties, Nina Saunders has conceived and produced works arising out of the subversion of the everyday object. Usually made from upholstery, her sculptures and installations form a kind of trompe-l'oeil representation of domestic reality. Saunders distorts utilitarian objects. She retrieves used furniture and transforms it with her radical interventions and invests them with incongruous functions with social or ideological import.

In the Softpan installation for Hygiene the ordinary implements used to clean domestic space become fetish objects. Her work addresses the routine obsessions of keeping spaces clean. Her work has been exhibited widely.
