This exhibition examines relationships to the life, use, and death of horses as revered among the farm animal kingdom. As a young girl I wished for the dream horse and life in the saddle. This golden reality was tempered by perfectly normal tasks such as castrating foals, putting horses down when it was time, and the deceptively dead sleeping horse in the paddock. Realities I accepted, yet never witnessed. Gelded is my exploration of the romantic allure of horses, severed from the real world where horses are just another farm animal.
