Kate Mccgwire "Lure" @ All Visual Arts Gallery, London

Juxtapoz // Friday, November 02, 2012
All Visual Arts are proud to present a major solo exhibition from sculptor Kate MccGwire. The title Lure is a dual reference to the ring of feathers used by a falconer to call and command their birds, and to the siren-like call of the work itself. It evokes the combination of our fascination with the iridescent, exotic specimens on display and the desire to look closer in spite of the disquieting atmosphere they create. The exhibition opens November 23, 2012 in London.
