Bridging the personal and the public, Zoe Koke’s sculptural and photographic propositions attempt to mend the disjunction between the two. In her work, she transforms daily findings: Architectural moments, mundane objects, medical tools, detritus from her neighbourhood, and natural elements into forbidding and seemingly pulsing nerves and nests. They can be understood as representing a vigilance that stands as a warning for the necessity of defensive measures. Some by contrast, gesture at protection for the vulnerable that lie in waiting. These gestures, some intuitive and some direct, caution against possible or inevitable violence.
