This piece was originally for a show at Pt Fairy called �New life from old Bones� where you bought an old book and made a piece of art based on it, the images or the materials of the book itself.
I bought Marie Curie by Eve Curie . I had once owned this book but it was burnt in a fire. I did three pieces based on the book two of which are here.
This piece is called �Struggle �and shows Marie the student being so cold in her garret that she went to bed with all her clothes on and then placed a chair on top to hopefully create more pressure and warmth.
I feel that it still fits the theme of the show in that the story is now almost forgotten and yet she really was an amazing character.
