The artist Clare Mitten's reimagining of A Factory As it Might Be - William Morris’s vision for how beautiful factories would act as centres of education and creativity - is influenced by Victorian science fiction and bio-inspired technology. PLANTWORKS explores the relationship of Morris to industrial manufacturing through drawings and paintings of plant specimens, translated into a collection of cardboard models, before transforming back into 2D motifs.
PLANTWORKS is generously supported by the Arts Council and Bow Arts Trust. An exhibition in the Story Lounge.
Free talk by the artist, Sunday 16 April at 2pm.
