Your unfortunate, yet obedient wife: the capturing of Lady Grange 
Cable knit porcelain

A work inspired by the tale of Lady Grange, from which the city of St Kilda gets its name. Held captive by her husband on the St Kilda archipelago in Scotland for 17 years, this sculpture aims to encapsulate the tension in Lady Grange’s story; where amidst the darkness life still persists and a distant voice is carried.     

The title is derived from a letter penned by Lady Grange to her husband Lord Grange during her captivity.
