Susie MacMurray at the V&A and Agnew's: Garments as Sculpture






The imposing and ingenious work of Susie MacMurray can now be seen at the Victoria and Albert Museum, where a black leather with 43kg of dress-maker pins, entitled Widow can now be seen as part off the Power of Making exhibition.


MacMurray is known for her large scale, site-specific installations within historic buildings, which include filling the entire attic space of Islington Mill in Salford with 80kg of feather down, wrapping 105 miles of gold embroidery thread throughout Kedleston Hall in Derbyshire and building a wall of silver plated mussel shells lined with velvet at Pallant House, Chichester.

This Autumn, alongside her work shown at the V&A, MacMurray's first solo exhibition runs at  Agnew’s gallery in Mayfair, allowing the chance to experience the work in one location.

The exhibition runs from 9th November to 2nd December.
35 Albemarle Street, London W1S 4JD
