This exhibition ran in 2013 at Rubicon ARI in Melbourne. It was my first experimentation with creating a “fur room”. And also the first outing of my fur suit. This took recycled fur coats, turned with the fur to the inside and hand stitched together to create a total immersion in fur. Visitors were invited to try on the suit. It was later selected as a finalist for the Toyota Sculpture Prize 2014.
