14 January – 7 May 2012

A display which brought together a selection of work by the contemporary British sculptor Cathie Pilkington.

Inspired by the Museum’s collections, the artist borrowed and stole ideas and memories from many of the toys on display to assist her own three dimensional cast of strange creatures and well-known characters from popular fairy tales.

Works featured included Little Red Riding Hood, The Wonderful Story of the Tar Baby (both 2011) and Singerie (2004).

With thanks to Marlborough Fine Art London, The David Roberts Art Foundation, Peter Hanington and Victoria Scott.
