Mat Collishaw


Beautiful and fascinating, I had never heard of this technique before...

Collishaw has created a Zeotrope. These were designed in 1834 to create an illusion of action from a rapid succession of images..
He has created the impression of huge fluttering moths that will be visable from dusk in the uppermost dome...
I am very excited to see this and there will be a smaller version to get closer to in the John Madejski Garden. What a good excuse to visit the V&A, or do you need one?

Kelly Mccallum

Wonderfully weird and witty work. I LOVE the taxidermy animals with "accessories"..the rabbit with the moustache!! Kelly is inspired by decay, preservation and also sentimentality so some ideas that are close to my heart.. She describes her work as
"Melodramatic scenes of mortal stillness"
