Adonia Hirst, Exploration

135 x 190 cm, repurposed fabric and stuffing, 2020

Adonia’s soft sculpture invokes a personal and intimate space for social connection. They are sewn from repurposed fabrics, such as off cuts of curtain fabric passed down by her mum who is a curtain maker, and stuffed with recycled materials. She strives to create a fun, accessible and inclusive space where people from different generations can interact with the works, documenting the results, through video and photography. Adonia graduated with a BA Hons in Fine Art from Newcastle University.
