      "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 diversely spans 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.
