Camilla Swire, 'Noble East Kent Goldings', detail

Camilla exhibited two pieces in Making Art Work’s On Tap exhibition in June 2014:

Noble East Kent Goldings

Derived from the fairy tale of Rumpelstiltzkin.  ‘Noble’ means that the hop is grown in the area in which it was developed. What is the future of the use of hops? This piece is a highly impractical attempt to make these East Kent Golding variants into decorative climbers indoors.

Golden Piss Pot

Derived from a fairy tale called Fortunatus’ purse. Inspired by Duchamp’s fountain, which is known sometimes as moneybags piss pot as a result of the play on words R. Mutt.
