‘His ’n’ Hers’ is a pair of cabinets, filled with items, made from felt, thread and acrylic by acclaimed artist Lucy Sparrow. From a limited edition of 50, the piece comes complete with signed certificate of authenticity and signed 'Felt World' book.
DetailsContemporary artist Lucy Sparrow has taken the art world by storm with her innovative felt displays. With the bright colours and soft tactility of child’s toys, Sparrow’s pieces are instantly emotive and magnetic. Yet, through this naive medium, Sparrow explores human need and desire, with themes ranging from sex, to violence, to consumerism. Her work is not only highly skilled, but filled with reflective depth, captured and contemplated spectacularly through her idiosyncratic use of textiles. ‘His ’n’ Hers’ is a pair of bathroom cabinets, each containing gendered toiletries: in his, items include Bryllcream, Viagra, and condoms; in hers, tampons, Canesten cream, and anti-ageing moisturiser; while some, more gender neutral items feature across both, from VapoRub, to vaseline, to vitamins. ‘His ’n’ Hers’ is not simply a commentary on consumerism, but a poignant expression of gendered life and an exploration of human biology as conceived through the market. Sparrow’s use of felt intensifies the piece, reducing products of necessity to toys that we want to touch, but that serve no functional purpose. Sparrow’s work is endlessly compelling, in both its brash beauty and its thoughtful complexities: this is contemporary art at its very best.
