The entrance tunnel to the Victoria & Albert Museum is being used for a series of installations. The current work is, The anti room of the Mae Queen, by Simon Periton, who has been working in cut-out paper for the last decade. The delicacy and decorative qualities of these pieces is juxtaposed by the solidity of the metal in which they are worked.
I was particularly taken with this lantern. It is based on disintegrating knitting but looks very like a bobbin lace pattern that I like to distort (Half stitch and net ground). Disintegrating textiles is an area that I intend to look at in the next semester.
