PLANT PODS & HANGING PODS
HOUSE LUMINARIES & STRING LIGHTS
Tenter is a body of sculptural work that emerged while exploring the alliance between nature and industry. Combining her feltmaking skills with a site-inspired conceptual framework, Abigail has investigated the history of House Mill, as well as processing the visual inspirations it provides. Planes of urban and rural industry intersecting the plane of nature; seed cases and pods become living organisms; structures that suggest aquatic life, or the macro world of cell mutation. The forms created are strange yet familiar; were they grown in a petrie dish, or did they crawl out of an East London canal?
