Margo Selby at Collect 2024
Crafts Council's International Art Fair for Modern Craft + Design

1 - 3 March, 2024, Somerset House, London

(Private Views 28 + 29 February)

Represented by Cynthia Corbett Gallery, Margo Selby returns to Collect Art Fair, with moon landing; her first site-specific installation, created in collaboration with composer Helen Caddick.

moon landing is an immersive artwork comprising a hand woven textile, 16 meters in height by Margo Selby, and a newly composed musical piece scored for strings by Helen Caddick. The textile art is suspended within the 5-story void of Somerset House's Stamp Stairwell, viewable in-the-round as you ascend and descend the winding stairs.

The fair hosts Private View events on February 28 and 29, with general admission from March 1 -3 including a series of public talks and events.

The project is inspired by the women who used their weaving skills and ability to visualise complicated patterns to create the integrated circuit designs used in the guidance and control systems of the Apollo spacecraft which resulted in the successful 1969 moon landing.
