Sara Fanelli Artist Talk

Renowned illustrator Sara Fanelli cemented her reputation with a successful series of innovative books for children, creating amusing stories and engaging worlds that have enthralled a whole generation of new readers. Her work has recently moved into unexplored territories, publishing her first illustrated book for adults Sometimes I think, Sometimes I am with Tate, and now working with the Stanley Picker Gallery to invite audiences to physically inhabit her designs through an installation of collaged objects, drawing, photography, light and film.

As part of her Stanley Picker Fellowship, Fanelli has been collaborating with students from Kingston University’s Faculty of Art, Design & Architecture to help her translate her idiosyncratic aesthetic into a three-dimensional environment. Taking bold steps away from the more familiar two-dimensional world of the illustrator, Fanelli invites us to join her on a journey that promises to be every bit as enchanting and inspiring as her work for the printed page.

Artist Talk Wed 29 April 5.30pm / Exhibition Launch 6.30-8.30pm
