Dawn is interested in the relationship between people and objects in contemporary consumer culture, and how objects are given value by individuals and societies. She uses a range of sculptural techniques and materials from slip casting porcelain and concrete, to sculpting cake and blancmange. Dawn then photographs her sculptures to present them in the public realm through advertising posters, billboards and on social networking sites.
For Yorkshire Sculpture International, Dawn worked with refugees and migrants in Wakefield to investigate sculptures as anthropological artefacts, particularly exploring identity and everyday experiences through food and consumer objects.
Yorkshire Sculpture International 2019 had an extensive engagement programme, working with schools, universities, communities and artists.
We explored sculpture with people of all ages, connecting them with the materials and processes used in making sculpture today and showing how sculpture can be found all around us.
