Wiðercwedolu þá Glésincga

 

Including a range of text works, images, built, carved and cast forms in daub, soap, zinc and tempera, the works debuted at The Residence Gallery attempted to re-historicise and re-fictionalise the biographical record of Cynethryth, eighth-century Queen of the Mercians. The creation of these works has been an attempt to aggressively unearth elements of Cynethryth’s life otherwise unrevealed or actively obscured by traditional historical discourse
