HOLLY SLINGSBY: Behind the Curtain

HOLLY SLINGSBY (BFA Christ Church 2006) creates performances that re-invent religious and mythical traditions. She is interested in mythological history and how it permeates contemporary culture.

Cup of Salvation II, 2014

Behind the Curtain (20th May - 13th June 2015)

'I am fascinated by the ways in which images overlap, how a particular symbol is adopted and adapted as it passes from ancient pagan mythology to devout religion to modern secularism. Classical figures are subsumed into contemporary consumerism – Venus razors, Nike trainers, Mars Bars. My recent work cannibalises and regurgitates visions of the divine.'

Holly Slingsby studied at the Ruskin and the Slade.
