Iceberg, bread, tunny was an installation in “From Floor to Sky: British Sculpture and the Studio Experience” curated by Peter Kardia,and held in London. Each artist was asked to submit one student's work and one current work. Julie Myers said of my work that the video “felt like I was seeing a landscape through the eyes of another person - not just because its hand held - but it really is a moving image - the edits were perfect . . . and I loved the combination of objects, drawings and video in the space...”, Colin Perry (Art Monthly, April 2010) commented “From the late 1970’s, the influence of Lacan and a host of feminist and post-structural thinkers would confront the watching eyes of the male gaze. Meynell’s Diary, 1983, which incorporates photographs and found objects (rank hair from the bath plug, dried clove buds), seeks to redirect the image of women’s bodies away from the male gaze.”
