Alice Anderson's Time Reversal
The Riflemaker has been cocooned by thousands of metres of dolls hair as part of Alice Anderson's Time Reversal exhibition. Anderson considers time, or more particularly the way that time shapes itself. Wax dolls, puppets and a short film The Night I Became A Doll all feature within the space which reinvents her childhood memories. The constant flow of woven hair cleverly spirals between floors by entering and exiting via the fireplaces, eventually cascading out the window. The tangled mess is what greets you, setting the mood for the rest of your journey through the exhibition space.
