THE AMAZING DISGRACES.

Aglaia, Thalia and Ephrosyne  have been found

in ancient Crete and Anatolia, and were the patrons of banquets, dancing and night festivities. By the 19th Century they embodied the feminine virtues valued by aristocratic young ladies.

These three amazing disgraces are exploring the values embodied in their ancient  roots

                            Marilyn Collins is an artist working with figurative sculpture, film, communities and the natural world           

 

 

           Using the figure as a vehicle for transformation, and exploring the narrative qualities of flowing water

 

           The wildness of our genome, the plight of domesticated species – the slaves that enable what we call civilization.  The positive determination of beings to fulfil a role and                        lifestyle suited to their nature in a world in which production and value have acceded.

 

            Giving a voice and  visibility, to the vast kingdoms of ‘other’ that have been created as human needs narrow the territory of the ‘others’. The ontological uncertainty of                            dependent relations, replacing interdependence.
