Artist: Penelope Campbell

Inheritance offers a tactile exploration into personal identity and genealogy. The multimedia exhibition comprises sculpture, recycled and reconstructed textiles and ‘inherited’ objects found by Campbell. The crocheted and embroidered organic forms suggest mutating cells – constantly transforming, altering in shape and spilling out of china tea cups, ornate silver trays, vintage teaspoons and antique pocket watches. In Inheritance, the artist reveals her acknowledgment and acceptance of possessing an inherited gene mutation, discovered while researching her ancestry.
