Persephone is from a series of three sculptures. Using gathered and found objects (silk flowers, birds wings, insects) these sculptures investigate themes of memento mori and metamorphosis.
This sculpture will be shown as part of the exhibition ‘Fragments’, a survey of 6 different artists on the theme of fragmentation and disintegration.
'Fragments' will be at Whitstable's Horsebridge Centre (The Horsebridge Centre 11 Horsebridge Road, Whitstable, Kent CT5 1AF) from Wednesday 7th November to Tuesday 13th November 2012.
Private View on Sunday 11th November 13.00-16.00
“Love Of My Father”, from Zara Carpenter’s new collection.
Here’s Zara story behind the hat:
This headpiece is made on a satin covered headband and sinamay base. It is adorned with a pair of pigeons wings, an adult pigeons head, nestled with a casting of a juvenile pigeon on a bed of fabric violets. The pigeon wing and head is covered in black fine glitter, representing ashes.
My father kept pigeons when I was young, he would send them off on long races and sometimes they won. He adored his pigeons. My father died when I was 15 which broke my heart and changed my life forever. Many people think pigeons are vermin but I love them and I always thought that is we did come back again once we die then maybe he would come back as a pigeon.’
