Biggus Icarus


July 10, 2021
12:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Rosie McGinn’s solo exhibition ‘Biggus Icarus’ follows her extended year-long graduate residency at Lewisham Arthouse.

The show features a large inflatable sculpture of a human free-falling from the stratosphere surrounded by a sequence of drawings and paintings that explore ‘A History of Human Flight’. From a Benedictine Monk fixing wings to his hands and feet and jumping from the top of Malmesbury Abbey to a Serbian flight attendant surviving a plane crash to Icarus flying too close to the sun; this new watercolour series continues McGinn’s research into the human spirit of exploration.
