Throughout the exhibition there is a combination of layers and layers and layers of venetian plaster burnished to a high lustre and rough tabby stucco made from post-consumer oyster shells. The walls of the gallery were painted to resemble the flesh of the mollusks and institutional doors and power outlets were swapped out with domestic ones.
