Skull Art

by Hannahspeltbackwards

The exhibition was last week and there were some really interesting and diverse responses to the theme. Here’s a look at my contribution, made from a potted brain cactus and modeller’s grass. The curators have also put together a publication titled, “The Rest is Silence: Death and the skull in contemporary art.” It will be launched in February 2012 and can be ordered here.

The book includes skull images and stories by the 100 artists in the show, plus more skull images from near and far, a collection of essays by Christine Schmidt, Helen Macdonald, David McInnes and Helen Huges and introduction by Claire Lambe and Elvis Richardson.
