Michael Petry: Bad Seed

4 February – 12 March 2011

The second part of Petry’s residency at the Soane sees the artist return to the Museum with works inspired by Sir John Soanes’ family history. The resultant biomorphic sculptures, in blown glass, take their inspiration from the legendry incubus and succubus, disturbing night-time spirits that inspired many Gothick writers and painters, such as Henry Fuseli.
