Culture 24 review on Small Wonders

'Despite recent illustration work for Top Shop and Stussy, a new solo show by Zara Wood travels a long way from the catwalk, taking you instead to a dusty world of antique display cases, animals which may be stuffed and anthropological curiosities.
The collection of nearly 40 pieces is numbered similarly to exhibits in a museum and if the sequence doesn't quite tell a story, it does build a narrative effect as familiar motifs repeat themselves. There's a hoard of pirates, a bevy of sad-eyed girls and a parliament of owls.'
