Wrapping, twisting, weaving – Judith Scott at Museum of Everything

Published in Trebuchet Magazine, 2011. Copyright Nicola Anthony

I loved the Judith Scott exhibition, and especially intriguing were the x-rays of the  sculptures’ insides – revealing many random objects that she had ‘appropriated’ (or taken!) and woven into the inside of a sculpture. Below are the images of my favourite pieces.

Museum of Everything showcases outsider art and people not usually recognised as artists. Judith Scott was mute, and her art was her form of communication or expression. The pieces are very powerful indeed, set off against the raw backdrop of the  former Selfridges Hotel. I’m only sorry I did not go earlier in the exhibition so I’d have a chance to return!

I recommend signing up for the Museum of Everything updates to hear about the next wondorous show, plus they are amazingly worded emails!

I also got a chance to pop into Selfridges and see the swirly whirly Blizzard installation by Mark Quinn in their Christmas window… Marc Quinn at Selfridges Christmas Window display, image by Nicola Anthony
