Cathie Pilkington

 

Cathie Pilkington's sculptural works often combine kitsch found objects with sinister figures. Her use of almost familiar but displaced domestic materials amplify the tableau effect: the scenes are both homely and 'unheimlich'. At first glance her Bad Animals work depicts cute animals, a second glance reveals that the animals are engaged in unspeakable acts.   

Recent exhibitions include White Elephant at Marlborough, London and Thy Neighbours Ox 2 at Space Station Sixty-five, London. Her Transition Gallery projects include That's Entertainment at The Whitstable Biennale (2008) and The Craft (2007), a two-person show with Emma Talbot.
