With Small Wonders I took over a tiny 13ft cube gallery space in a domestic setting in one of London’s suburbs.
Using a lot of found materials I created a temporary and decorative installation that was almost a replica of a home setting.
I found and painted a fire grill that doubled as a shelve, used mirrors and painted picture frames so that they looked like they were ‘just part of the furniture’.
And yet there was something unusual or artificial about the rest of the work in and around this ‘home’.
It was certainly playful and exploratory. Like a child had been let loose and was allowed to cover the surfaces with anything that they found appealing – coloured papers, plastercine and extremely vivid/highlighter colours.
And that’s exactly what she did – for the joy and possible amusement of anyone passing to see a curious scene in a common context.
