Dovecot Studios presents the work of the ever-popular artist, celebrated Turner Prize winner and self-styled “unapologetic fetishist” Grayson Perry.
The exhibition, which is the final stop of Julie Cope’s Grand Tour, includes the complete series of tapestries and a selection of artefacts from A House for Essex, an installation designed by Perry with FAT Architecture to evoke a wayside pilgrimage chapel, which - instead of a patron saint - is dedicated to the life of Julie Cope, a typical Essex woman.
The exhibition also offers the opportunity to explore the art of tapestry and the different crafts, skills and techniques used to produce these extraordinary objects.
A Crafts Council touring exhibition.
