Royal Shakespeare Company Exhibitions

As part of the collective Girls Who Draw, I was commissioned by The Royal Shakespeare Company to work on two interactive exhibition projects. The first installment of the exhibition was inspired by "The Roaring Girl" and explored the tradition of cross dressing in theatre and how we often use clothes to express our personalities. For the project I created 3 colourful and contemporary characters adorned with tattoos (I do love sneaking animals into my work wherever possible). These illustrations were then applied to large scale mix and match blocks to create life-size characters that visitors can interact with. Very much like a 3D version of the Victorian game "exqusite corpse".


The 2nd exhibition was themed around the Shakespear play Macbeth, with the brief being to create 3 characters inspired by the well known characters from "The Scottich Play", for a Halloween activity trail within the RSC.
