"Kathryn Ashill has been reflecting on the slowness of her pace and her desperate need for personal space during lockdown with her young children.
For MALWOD Kathryn and her babies are in the heart of her back garden. She wears a snail shell, which provides Kathryn with adequate personal protection and a bit of much needed head space.
Kathryn also carries the huge guilt of having massacred all the snails in her garden after going on a rampage with bright blue slug and snail pellets.
The humble malwoden/snail carries its house on its back, Kathryn feels an affinity with this domestic load.
Sadly, her garden is now full of empty snail shells."
