“Ordinary things will be signs for us” – Sister Corita Kent
Inspired by the life and work of Madge Gill, House of Flying Angel explores destiny, the paranormal, fashion and sense of place in the form of a curated set of ‘houses’ in the gallery.
The house of Abdul Jalil will be a library of the supernatural. The house of Helen Biney is a house of textiles, ribbons and colour. The house of Deborah Lulendo and Hannah Le Feuvre is a wardrobe of eclectic garments and tactile hats. The house of Umar Ravat, Johnny Stone and Lesley Greening Lassoff is a house without walls exploring symbols and psychogeography, with reference to Madge Gill’s art and séances in the home.
House of Flying Angel will be on at the same time as an exhibition of the work of Madge Gill at the William Morris Gallery, the most comprehensive survey of Gill’s work to date. Gill was a self-taught, visionary artist living in East London. For more information visit here.
Winns Gallery is located in Lloyd Park, just a short walk from William Morris Gallery. You can see both exhibitions during the same visit.
House Of Flying Angel will run as part of Waltham Forest Borough of Culture 2019.
