The Story of Aurora - Mirror Mime Exhibition
Client: Yorkshire Sculpture Park
Date: 11 Nov 2010 - 27th Feb 2011
The Bretton Estate was designed over 200 years ago as a private pleasure ground. One of its owners, Sir Thomas Wentworth, created lakes with small islands to house menageries & commissioned a ship called the Aurora. Inspired by these historical events, I created an imagined narrative where the Aurora returns to carrying characters from distant lands. Freeing the drawn line from the page, my art is translated on into vinyl & runs along the 20m concourse windows.
