"I am involved in risky
'take-overs'. Currently the 'sensible woman' is my subject. I entice
her into leading a double-life of invisibility. You may say that this
type of life is characteristic of a "sensible woman" anyway ... but
wait, those invisible tasks she undertakes could make her invincible."
Bridget Baker, 2005
Bridget Baker's conceptual artmaking practise
participatory performance, crafting intricate objects, through to
producing extensive photographic stills and installation projects.
Baker remains concerned with observing public and private methods of
surviving the mundanity of adult responsibility, especially hard work.
She works with characters that are iconic, regardless of whether they
are working to prove their invinciblity or at the point of their death
and struggling to stay alive.
