Freya’s work explores ideas of identity, reoccurring motifs and the concealment of one’s thoughts and feelings. The artist dissects familiar objects and then assembles them to create something entirely new, using a doll’s shoe as an eye-brow or a doll’s leg as a strand of hair, “positioning familiar objects in an unfamiliar context."
In the exhibition, Arti-facts, Freya has created works specifically for the Wonder Cupboards. These works are all assemblages created from second-hand toys, all unwanted, discarded, abandoned and then replaced. Freya gives new life to these preloved and abandoned plastic dolls reimagining them into thought-provoking sculptures.
All toys used in Freya's assemblages are secondhand, all of these toys were unwanted, discarded, abandoned and replaced. They have now been elevated into artworks.
