Oh Dickens! Chatsworth House Commission

Back in the spring, I was invited to Chatsworth House to discuss ideas for their upcoming 
Christmas exhibition.
Jump forward to November 2017, and...

... Oh Dickens! It's Christmas opened to the public on Saturday. 
My commissioned installation 'Dickens's London' is on display in the house until 7th January. 
Based on old photgraphs of the streets, slums and Inns where Dickens drew his inspiration, are houses sculpted from each of his 16 novels, first published between 1836 - 1870.

'At times London took on a role of it's own, dominating Dickens's narrative like a character in it's own right'. (Excerpt taken from 'Dickens's Victorian London', by Alex Werner and Tony Williams.
