For Facelift, the London-based artist has made work by applying techniques used in mechanical and biological processes, such as “autobody repairs, customisation, surgery and cosmetics”.
She will also treat installation as something that can be followed, instructed and applied by making use of existing hanging guides and protocols found outside the exhibition space, while new standards will be invented, too, “for the sake of formality within the display”.
Dray’s practice takes modes of presentation and finds and re-displays their active components and particulars, a bit like a bottle of foundation that tells you that it also has SPF 15 protection in it. She last year worked with light, metals, plug sockets, heat and infra-red in DRAY at Cell Project Space in London and this time will work with dental plaster, and silicone, amongst other softer metals.
