1 Kilo Block, Feeds the Whole Family (2005), supplements the readymade with imagination. The domestic space of the kitchen becomes a manufacturing zone for feeding the family. The traditional role of the mother stuck in the kitchen, slaving over a hot stove, has now become a place of automation and democratisation.


Maintaining the family as a connected entity runs parallel with the isolation and loneliness of suburbia, where outings to the supermarket are oriented on preexisting parameters – roads and isles, cash registers and the killing me softly drone of elevator music. Yet 1 Kilo Block, Feeds the Whole Family is an enabling machine, metaphorically whisking away suburban isolation and liberating ‘her’ from the home.
