METAMORPHOSIS featuring the work of Celia Curtis, Katrina Lynch and Yasmina Black at 107 Projects does what it says on the tin. This is a transformative show with a rich array of style and form, and it is cleverly pitched in sections of light and dark.
In a light-filled white space, Celia Curtis’ jewel-bright bird sketches fold into the dun and caramel mottled camouflage of moths, feathers and wings spanning the space, the intricacies of detail spellbinding.
This then morphs into a display of sublime millinery by Yasmina Black, birds feathers taking flight atop raffia, woven form supporting the flightiest whimsy.
Against gunmetal grey walls, the theme is darker, tighter, with bodices and ruffles in cobalt blue and magenta on black, the crimson blood of a pheasant’s feather a pointed moment, before the exhibition cedes into delicate sorrow in the intricate beauty of lost lives cast in copper, gold and grief. Katrina Lynch’s work immortalises tiny beings in rarified preciousness. They hold the end of the line, their cold inertia held in soft folds of felt, velvet and wool.
Don’t miss the final days of METAMORPHOSIS, Saturday 15th, Sunday 16th May, 11am-5pm, 107 Redfern Street, Redfern.
