Morwenna Catt– Art textile work / UK
Installation of Trophies, a Collection of archetypes with specimen labels. A set of sculptural, wall based textile pieces, heavily worked with antique fabrics and rich embroidery.
A series of embroidered sculptural heads inspired by the Victorian “science” of phrenology. Frankenstein-like rows of stitches replace facial features, reinforcing the surgical associations of needlework and lending an “uncanny anatomical presence”.
