The Disquietude Trophy is a small soft sculpture full of imperfections, made from fluorescent green and yellow thread using an antiquated bobbin lace technique. The shape and style of the trophy is based on presentation silver ornaments produced in the mid-1800s. These presentation pieces were often given to dignitaries and state officials from “the people” to recognise their high status and contributions in shaping a nation.
The Disquietude Trophy is for those who have not held positions where their voice can be heard but whose lives are greatly affected by structures imposed on them by those in power. When faced with limited resources, seemingly everyday tasks can be big achievements which are rarely acknowledged. So, if you got out of bed this morning, this trophy is for you.
