Inspired by a woman walking through Cork city in a business outfit who appeared, to me, awkward and uncomfortable in her high heels and handbag, as if holding this image of herself together in order to fit into a role.Drawing on research exploring colonial ethnography alongside contemporary female labour roles I dressed to mimic a business woman, well groomed, neat hair, high heels and a handbag. In each leg my tights were filled with six kilos of icing sugar, which plumed with each footstep, leaving a sweet dusty trail wherever I walked.
