The Fear is Real | by Linda Blair

Published by: Bridget Kennedy | 29-Sep-2018
This exhibition of enamelled jewellery examines the wearing of insects, beetles and creatures that crawl and fly. In the Victorian period, women wore beetles as jewellery. How do we feel today? Can we overcome our disquiet and see the beauty of these creatures? Can we wear something in public that represents a private fear?
