British artist Laura Ford has been commissioned by HOUSE Biennial in partnership with Brighton Museum & Art Gallery.

About

A King’s Appetite is a new sculptural installation that takes inspiration from Royal Pavilion & Museum Collections including caricatures by James Gillray and George Cruikshank satirising aspects of the life of the Prince Regent, and imagery found in the Willett Collection of pottery and porcelain.

Ford’s work is consistently curious about the human condition and wider social and political issues, often mixing the bitter sweet with wit. This new work explores socio-political notions of excess, greed and indulgence and the Imperialist attitudes that they reflect. The resulting imagery looks at fundamental contemporary issues relating to Excess, the theme of this year’s HOUSE Biennial, and its subsequent inequalities, both of the Regency period and of society today
