Today was the opening day of The Hepworth Wakefield’s Spring exhibition, which features art by David Thorpe, Ben Rivers and Heather & Ivan Morison. At 3.00, the Morisons’ puppet show, Anna, took place in Gallery 10. I was one of the puppeteers, or “manipulators” as marionette operators are known. The show is based on Anna Kavan’s novel, Ice.
The puppets, Anna and The Warden, are pretty creepy I think you’ll agree…
After the show, The Warden and I hung out in the staff room and shared a chocolate finger: a reward for our efforts.
Here are some pics of the Morisons’ exhibition in Gallery 10.
