Anna Ilsley at STORE

Anna would love to see you at STORE on Friday for the opening of TEMPLE OF LUSTS. 

As artist in residence at STORE during May Anna has developed a new body of work begun during her residency at the British School in Athens. With giant paper cut-outs she is (from ceiling to floor) creating a mythological, legendary landscape inspired by medieval painted churches. Using the local Treadwells bookshop (specialists of the banned, burned and ridiculed literature) to search for myths and characters, the current cast include Queens of tragedy Sarah Siddons as Boudica, Lady Godiva as herself and Tina Turner as Compere. 

Private View Friday 6th June from 6-10 p.m. If you want to come but cant make the PV please e-mail annailsley at The show will be open by appointment for two weeks.
