walk in to my parlour: spinning gossamer threads, and playing parlour games is an archive of work 1990-2015
Over the 25 years documented here, Alice Lunt took very particular found objects, that carried within them a history of their previous usage, from a predominantly domestic, but also a medical-care-institutional environment and transformed them: subverting and coercing them to become cruel parodies of themselves; juxtaposing them with text and still or moving image; tampering with them in an exploration of the “done-to-ness” in Self-Other relationships.
Throughout the years her work has evolved from making objects, to making installations and performances. She has performed in Brighton, London, Glasgow, Berlin and Krakow.
Alice Lunt’s central concern, that runs like a thread through the work archived here, is the way in which we treat one another when we profess to care; the everyday crimes committed in the name of ‘love’.
Now, however,through self-reflection and re-evaluation, and years of being a mother herself, it is time to reconsider the work as a potential antidote to toxic mis-encounters; working in collaborations with others she seeks to create moments of connection and confirmation.
Far away from the spider’s web of the past a resonant space between ‘you and me’ opens up: full of new and unexpected possibilities. Less concerned now in drawing the Other in, she is interested in creating a place where we can meet, listen and respond, where we can engage in a dialogue through making and creating.
