“Ordinary things will be signs for us” – Sister Corita Kent
Inspired by the life and work of Madge Gill, House of Flying Angel explored 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 was a library of the supernatural. The house of Helen Biney was a house of textiles, ribbons and colour. The house of Deborah Lulendo and Hannah Le Feuvre was a wardrobe of eclectic garments and tactile hats. The house of Umar Ravat, Johnny Stone and Lesley Greening Lassoff was a house without walls exploring symbols and psychogeography, with reference to Madge Gill’s art and séances in the home.
House of Flying Angel was on at the same time as the 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.
