ARTIST OF THE WEEK #2 _ Lucy Sparrow

lucy sparrow

Working at the intersection of contemporary art and craft, Lucy Sparrow’s work sets the agenda
for textiles within the urban art scene. She works mainly with felt and wool,
creating over-sized soft versions of existing objects and major art works The aim of this ‘feltism’ is to question,
playfully, the politics of artistic production and to tackle (often collaboratively) some of realities of contemporary living,
dealing with issues concerning the politics of consumerism, social exclusion and mental wellbeing.

Digestive biscuits, Bisto, Red Stripe, KY Jelly and Men’s Health magazine … Lucy Sparrow has stuffed and
stitched them all for her installation The Cornershop. Funded by Kickstarter, the shop contains nearly
2,000 classic groceries; and they’re all for sale.
