Animal sculptures wrapped in five-needle lace, handmade cotton crochet webbing by Portuguese artist Joana Vasconcelos. The animals are reproductions of oversized ceramic pieces by the 19th century Portuguese artisan Rafael Bordalo Pinheiro (1846-1905).

The idea being to one-up the works with an overlay of feminine domesticity, radicalising preconceived notions of modernism, tradition and motherhood.

Where is your God now?
