CORVID, 2011

Mixed media installation with crow and jackdaw feathers
122 x 331 x 149 cm

A specially commissioned work made to mark the opening of All Visual Arts' new space and to accompany a new sculpture by Alice Anderson. 'Corvid' is a serpentine form made of crows' feathers, a bird associated in folklore with deviant behaviour. It appears muscular, tensile, as if it has the power to restrain. Like the pattern of our thoughts, it turns endlessly in on itself, without beginning or end, or any obvious resolution.
