People who have saved this event:



An installation of two stitched wall-hangings in the stairwell of the Queen Anne townhouse by Alice Kettle (b.1961), one of Britain’s leading textile artists. Whilst recalling the tradition of huge figurative tapestries in historic houses, these works use stitch in a contemporary manner as a gesture to create painterly effects with rich surface textures. The two works draw upon Homer’s enduring epic narrative poem The Odyssey, following the journey of Odysseus home to Ithaca after the Trojan Wars.
