A new exhibition of work inspired by Angela Carter is now available to view at the Coexist Gallery, at Hamilton House in Bristol. Designed by Cardiff-based illustrator Layla Holzer, the exhibition consists of “paintings, paper cuts, objects, and puppet films, all inspired by a selection of Carter’s work”, including ‘The Bloody Chamber’ (1979), The Passion of New Eve (1977), The Magic Toyshop (1967), and other stories from across Carter’s oeuvre. “Focusing particularly on themes of gender, animal-human relationships, metamorphosis and fairy tales, the exhibition will present a fresh, contemporary exploration of Carter’s ideas and take them beyond the page”.
