Anna Ilsley: Temple of Lust

For her residence at STORE, artist Anna Ilsley has produced a new installation as a continuation of work developed during her residency at the British School in Athens earlier this year. With monumental paper cut-outs (from ceiling to floor) Isley has created a mythological, legendary landscape inspired by medieval painted churches. Using the local Treadwells bookshop (specialists in banned, burned and ridiculed literature) and the nearby British Museum to search for myths and characters. The current cast of queens of tragedy include legendary actress Sarah Siddons as Boudica, Lady Godiva as herself and Tina Turner as Compere.
