Teresa Wilson is a visual artist who explores the space between sculpture, installation and theatre.
Old clothes, objects and props are hoarded and reused to make disturbing puppets of humans and birds. These are installed to create evocative environments where private dramas take place.
The work refers to the past. It suggests stories to the viewer of uncanny happenings, memories, and past traumas.
The viewer is invited to explore an imaginative alternative reality and approach emotional and sometimes uncomfortable subject matter in a gentle and darkly playful way.
These macabre figures hint at an ‘otherworld’ of ancient fables and fairy stories. Their damaged forms stir our pity, but at the same time repulse – creating anxiety within the strange melancholy space they inhabit.
Teresa's work explores the psychological hinterland of undigested experience – a space of timelessness, darkness and enchantment.
The artist's practice includes site-responsive installations, sculpture and drawing.
