Veils, 2012. Machine lace net curtains (brise-bise) made from synthetic fibre.
Veils is a temporary intervention on the colonnade immediately outside the main entrance of Nottingham Castle Museum & Art Gallery. The colonnade is home to a group of portrait busts – sculptures in bronze and marble of writers and poets associated with Nottingham, including Lord Byron, DH Lawrence and Henry Kirke White. For Lace Works Exhibtion, three of these portrait heads have been shrouded in fabric and the folds held in place by cord bound round each sculptural form.
