Cristina Rodrigues: ‘Guardian Angels’
Tatton Park, Knutsford, Cheshire
21 May – 4 October 2015
The latest exhibition by Portuguese-born and Manchester-based installation artist and former architect and ethnographer, on display at a Georgian National Trust country house venue. Rodrigues’ art lends an artistic identity to functional objects within the house, such as tables, chairs and chandeliers, by covering or enveloping domestic furniture in silks, ribbons, lace and other woven or knitted fabrics simulating traditional Portuguese female crafts.
