Project Rabbrexit 2018-19
Between 2018-19, over a six-month residency at House of Illustration(now Quentin Blake Centre for Illustration), I have woven a parallel universe in which the UK has voted not for Brexit but 'Rabbrexit': the expulsion of rabbits from the country.
For my solo exhibition Rabbrexit Means Rabbrexit, I created a series of ‘relics’ from the UK’s imaginary rabbit population, including large-scale embroidered epics, newly minted 52p and 48p coins and aeroplane landing cards for rabbits stripped of their British citizenship.
These satirical pieces draw together my real-world observations of the nationalistic fervor, economic uncertainty and fragmentation of societal bonds brought about by Brexit.
This residency and body of work established my further thinking in navigating 'Embroidery-drawing' for the past three years.
