Cocks, Asses (subtitle: I can’t hear) 2007

In Cocks, Asses & … (I can’t hear) Cruise employs life size ceramic and bronze figures, prints and the pages of a 100 page diary in order to explore humankind’s inability to listen – to each other, to the environment and to the other inhabitants of the world. The works are about the visual articulation of the ‘space between’ - the space between language and experience, and between humans and other sentient beings. The clay bodies act as ‘pages’ on which she writes. Man’s disregard for fellow man, for other inhabitants of the earth, and for his surroundings are articulated, not through that which exists to be seen, but through the unseen space of body language and inflection.
