Fashion designer and artist Susan Cianciolo brings her unique and intimate creations to the South London Gallery Fire Station.

Drawing together elements inspired by craft, fashion and daily domestic life, Susan Cianciolo combines materials ranging from fabric off-cuts and buttons and glue, through to cardboard boxes, diary pages and her young daughter’s drawing in her work.

In this exhibition her work can be seen in four main groups: 'Mannequins', 'Kits', 'Tapestries' and 'Games' - part of a single, overarching project. She reinvents high-fashion mannequins into works of art through dressing them in inimitable garments, presents DIY boxes filled with fragments of her own life, and interrogates how games become a natural part of living with children.

These personal and found objects serve to offer an intimate insight into the life and practice of Cianciolo as an artist and a mother, as well as revealing her sense of spirituality.
