OVERVIEW: For Mirror Mirror I was asked by the artist Linder to begin with the word lilac for inspiration to create a social collage of performances created in response to her work for British Art Show 8 during its installation in Edinburgh at Inverleith House. Diagrams of Love: Marriage of Eyes is a gun-tufted wool rug backed with gold lamé produced in collaboration with Dovecot Studios, Edinburgh. Cut in a spiral form, the rug’s references include surrealist artist Ithell Colquhoun’s notion of automatism, or the ‘mantic stain,’ meditative labyrinths and Barbara Hepworth’s sculptures. Linder describes the result as a shape-shifting ‘21st-century version of a magic carpet.’
