Georgia Russell’s books, and birds.

I was researching an artist who slashes up books yesterday, who will remain anonymous as she (oops) led me on to Georgia Russell’s work which is way more exciting! She tears up books, maps, music scores, photographs and newspapers for these vitrines of organic, birdlike creations.

…this piece in particular reminds me of a horrifying experience I had with small stuffed crested crane (have a look, it’s disgusting) we had in our art classroom at school – I tripped over its stand, it fell over and its head snapped off! Not. A. Nice. Day.

Georgia Russell is exhibiting at the moment as part of the Courtauld Institute of Art’s East Wing X which I think is in Somerset House so have a lookie if you liked this lot 🙂
