What a delight! A completely enjoyable and engaging delight.
I’m sure regular readers have probably already visited, or witnessed the development of the work and the exhibition on various social media platforms …
I was just a little bummed that I couldn’t work the mechanisms myself (the gallery staff do that), but I can totally understand why that’s the case.
It’s entirely possible I squealed with delight … just a little bit. I remember someone writing somewhere (perhaps on Instagram?) that it was fantastic that ‘kittens are our evil overlords’ (that’s what my mind has put together anyway)… Elizabethan overlords at that! The ‘covert operators’, pretending to be evil kittens, were the funniest.
Almost all pieces were objects, with some sporting detachable jewellery pieces such as earrings and brooches.
What a feat. What an imagination.
