About'A Description of a New World, Called the Blazing World'
Jerwood Visual Arts Project Space
Café 171, Jerwood Space, London, SE1 0LN
Jerwood Visual Arts presents new work by London-based artist Anna Bunting-Branch.
Bunting-Branch works in painting, moving image and writing to explore feminist visions and re-visions of history. For the exhibition she has produced a wall-based painting object which takes the form of a toy theatre. The work draws both its title and imagery from Margaret Cavendish's utopian fantasy 'A Description of a New World, Called the Blazing World', a proto-science fiction novel written in 1666.
