AboutFlora Parrott's â1000th' explores the futility inherent in those daily tasks and continual labours which remain perpetually unfinished.
With her garland of 999 soap fingers, Parrott draws on the Buddhist story of Angulimala's struggle to collect 1000 fingers. Despite extreme sacrifices and endless efforts, Angulimala was unable to complete his training as the fingers continued to rot.
Parrott presents the viewer with an unnerving sense of frustration when faced with 1000th's deliberate and provocative resistance of resolution. Through metaphor the work makes our contemporary condition and the dissatisfactions of modern working-life grotesquely tangible.
