Wreaths to Pleasure depicts different flowers and fruits set against both pleasant and poisonous liquids: tomato juice, melted chocolate, and detergents and soaps like Windowlene, Fairy, and Germolene antiseptic cream. Shot from above and framed in the artist’s own circular brightly coloured enamel steel frames, the works were the result of several years of experimentation. Piss Flowers (1991-92) are twelve cast bronze white “flowers” made from the snow-packed moulds of Chadwick and her partner’s urine. Made from quite literally ‘pissing in the snow’, the contrasting patterns created by the male and female body are transformed into sculptures of a trans-sexual bed of flowers.
