The installation consists of lengths of golden thread wrapped between pillars to form a maze like structure. Inspiration was taken from various places around Kedleston; the peacock dress - a dress entirely covered with golden embroidery resembling the shape and texture of peacock feathers, the guilding that covers almost every decorative chair leg, mirror/picture frame and window within the hall, and the idea of journeys and the grand tour - a theme that is consistent throughout the Kedleston Hall museum.
I have really enjoyed working on this installation, (despite the silly early mornings and almost constant grumpiness!), gaining alot of insight into public art and meeting some wonderful people! I already miss it and can't wait for the private view and to hear some reactions to it!
