Fair Ground Fables @ The Ropewalk
Nov 8 – Nov 30 all-day
Fair Ground Fables @ The Ropewalk

Michelle recalls a frightfully fascinating childhood memory of a former sideshow attraction in Whitby. Her recollection of witnessing a pickled dicephalic baby and the staked bones of Dracula began the blurring of the boundaries between reality and fantasy. ‘Fairground Fables’ was conjured to question the satirical and moral ambiguity of fringe entertainment presented behind the curtains of Vaudeville theatres and Victorian Side Shows. Michelle draws from idioms and fables that play with tales of tragedy and fortune as well as the traces of life that befall the discarded or well loved, by enlivening everyday objects with an air of uncertainty.  She assembles things left behind on dusty shelves, creating magnetic forms that encourage the viewer to take an encounter with the apprehension of things.  ‘Fairground Fables’ is bent with a nostalgic and melodramatic allure that bestows something provocative and enchanting.   On November 24 Michelle will be running a workshop teaching participants how to make their own Fairground Fable. Bookings can be made in the Craft Gallery.

North Lincolnshire Museum invites visitors to come and look at the conflicting sides of historical objects. Our Cruel Beauty objects were made for dangerous intentions, but when you look at their craftsmanship they are truly beautiful.

Everyday objects of the past that were kept as curiosities or ornaments, such as taxidermy and carved ivories. Do we see their beauty or do we see how they were produced?
