Catherine Heard
Hansel and Gretel

24.08.11 – 04.10.11

Catherine Heard creates uncanny artworks that interrogate the history of the body through the lenses of science, medicine and myth. Her sculptures and installations are inspired by her fascination with human anatomy, and the contradiction of using fine craft to create abject images.

Hansel and Gretel plays on the symbolic complexity of the original folk tale, recorded by the Brothers Grimm in 1812, and its analysis by child psychologist, Bruno Bettelheim, in his 1976 book, The Uses of Enchantment: The Meaning and Importance of Fairy Tales.

Catherine Heard is represented by Edward Day Gallery, 952 Queen Street West, www.edwarddaygallery.com. Her work can also be viewed at www.catherineheard.com.
