Silver Spoon depicts healthcare and shared medical knowledge as a privilege to be enjoyed by the financial elite. Crafted in response to the increasing privatisation of the NHS and austerity measures that are designed to reduce equal access to healthcare opportunities and overwork underpaid NHS staff and care workers.
Silver Spoon is part of the Fool's Gold series. The Fool's Gold treasures see the transformation of everyday objects under the imagined lens of a 21st century midas touch. The work investigates conventionally 'valuable' materials and their characteristics in order to examine how the functionality and use value of contemporary objects might be comprimised through the dystopian pursuit for 'luxury'. Each item transformed holds particular significance in representing lived socio-economic narrative.
