Podtopia continues with an installation by Lyn Dallison and myself.
Gone To The Dogs is a collaborative installation by Lyn Dallison and Rachel Collier – Wilson.
The work of both artists is centred around domestic skills: Collier – Wilson takes traditionally rendered life drawings, drafts them onto pattern paper then machine sews them; Dallison uses fabric and thread on 3D objects to change the surface and shift the perception of the object . Hence there is a common thread.
The idea for the installation came from the challenge for the artists of doing small works for the Pod at Satellite Gallery. To maintain interest in the exhibition in the Pod both artists felt change and challenge necessary. This creates a dialogue that helps the artists move forward with new ideas.
