‘Accretion’ is an accumulation of many parts. Its evolution, the labour-intensive process of its making is an important element in the work. ‘Accretion’ is an abject object. It has connotations of the intestine, a metaphor for waste, excess and recycling, and other tentacular forms. Like pulling hair out of a plug, it is repulsive, ambiguous.
