The Ladies’ Changing Room

The Ladies’ Changing Room

This is half of the piece “His’n’Hers”. A piece that plays with gender stereotypes. This changing room is built inside a well cared for 1930’s ice-skating boot and reflects the luxury changing rooms of the 1970’s.

The genuine limestone floor leads from the frosted shower cubicles to the lockers. The locker contains a brass coat hanger and the large leather holdall used to move the skates around. inside are the tights used under the spangly ice-skating dress.

On the side are hairdryers that can be lifted out of their holders, hairspray, tissues and other toiletries. Spare clean Towels are in abundance.
