In her small-scale sculptural pieces, Schmitz explores rudimentary ways of defence. The 50 ‘snares’ are made from wax, leather, latex, sharpened sticks, bandages, rope, hair and teeth. Scavenged objects are battered and carved into submission to be formed into weapons, traps and monuments. These in turn are used to impale and be impaled by fragmented injured bodies. Made over three months many of the pieces forming these broken and oozing objects are cast from Schmitz’s body. She then pushes, bends and repairs them to form this dispersed and disjointed collection of corporeal wreckage. The installation encourages viewers to alter the way they move through the space and consider carefully where they step.
