Discussion: The Essence of Mrs. Darling's Kiss


Exploring key themes in the current exhibition, this event will include a talk led by curator Denise de Cordova with participating artists and special guests.

She is currently represented by the Eagle Gallery, London. She also exhibits ceramic sculptures under the name Amy Bird.

About the exhibition:
On 7th July, Arch 402 Gallery presents Mrs. Darling's Kiss, a multimedia group exhibition featuring works by UK-based and international artists who reflect and 'know' the enigmatic, the intriguing, the frustrations and lure of desire. The resulting works, ranging from painting to sculpture, installation and film, highlight the hidden power and potency that comes from artifice and its ability to linger in our imagination. The exhibition title takes its cue from the J.M. Barrie writings about Peter Pan, in which Mrs. Darling possesses an unreachable kiss.

This exhibition is curated by Stephen Chambers and Denise de Cordova and is accompanied by a Film Programme for the duration of the exhibition.
