Step into the turbulent mind of the artist with this imaginative sculpture puppet installation. The uncanny work crosses over the space between art and theatre, taking as its starting point the recurring theme of the artist's nightmarish dream in the work of 18/19th century artists of the Romantic Movement, such as Goya, Henry Fuseli and John Anster Fitzgerald.

A word of warning: this art installation contains demons and other supernatural manifestations. Look behind you as you leave something may try to follow you!

Teresa Wilson explores the uncanny through her sculptural and installation practice; shortlisted for the Neo Art Prize 2019. Julie House is an artist who uses both drawing and textile sculpture to create an alternative world of imaginative creatures; she has a background in theatre/art in education.
