Reflect Forward

Recognised for her limited edition artist’s books and desire to uncover lost narratives, Lucy May Schofield unveils a stunning collection of exclusive installations and book works.

 

Research into the hidden archives at the V&A Museum of Childhood has informed a fascination with the fabricated reality found in the dolls house. These curious constructions of miniature interiors, like portals into a make-believe world, have inspired the creation of intricate books and box works, which explore notions of domestic mendacity.

 

This solo exhibition offers the unique chance to view new works illustrating her passion for narrative, form, interpretation and interaction.

New work by paper and book artist Lucy May Schofield

27 February -  22 March 2008

Research into the hidden archives at the V&A Museum of Childhood has informed Lucy May Schofield's fascination with the fabricated reality found in the dolls house. These curious constructions of miniature interiors, like portals into a make-believe world, have inspired the creation of intricate books and box works, which explore notions of domestic mendacity.

""I have always been interested in domesticity and I found the dolls houses really inspiring, I'm interested in what they represent - shelter, protecttion, warmth and food - and how they reflect children's expectations."  Her miniature, set-like installations are made out of carefully arranged found objects reflecting a self-confessed passion for ordering things."
