In her own words Carol uses ‘film, found objects, installation and text in attempts to engage with the discourses of literature and literary criticism.’This exhibition was a response to the novels of Iris Murdoch in a variety of ways. An avid fan of Iris Murdoch, with a thorough understanding and grasp of the complex texts and themes, Carol has reconstructed selected elements of the work and carefully assembled them in the Crown Street space.With a mass of postcard sized pieces, presented next to videos of women reading selected texts there is a lightness and comedic feel to elements. This is balanced with a real sense of focus and love for the texts presented.
Well done Carol – we love it!
