Hush, my fluttering heart
During the Snow Q event, the bird-like structures were suspended from hooks in the Meat Safe with projections created by Wendy Pye, soundtracks of flapping wings and the Lullaby written by Maria Jastrzebska and Peter Copley. You can see a short extract of this event, including part of the ‘Hush, my fluttering heart’ installation here.
This installation depicted another chapter about being both captured and nurtured and is entitled ‘The Little Robber Girl’ . It talks simultaneously of conflicting emotions and of untamed love that is expressed with both tenderness and violence. The bottom row shows a different, studio/gallery display inspired by Baroque Spanish and Dutch Still Life paintings of birds and objects are suspended in boxes.
