Laid to Rest: A Memoriam of Art Dolls

Presenting a new body of work by PollyWhistle based around the contents of a recently discovered draft manuscript entitled 'Laid to Rest - The Artful Obituary' by social butterfly Angelica Frankle. 

Starting with the sweet yet bawdy "Wincle Sisters" and the tragic yet ordinary love story of "Arthur and Mary Crumphorn" presented at two separate exhibitions in October 2018, Laid to Rest is a long term project with thirteen and a half chapters. Click here for more info and see Events page for dates and venues details.

“It’s like finding a chest in the attic and pulling out the beautiful frocks, photos and letters that peppered a person’s life without ever meeting them!” Angelica Frankle
