‘They do say there is a witch in it and if you let ‘un out there’ll be a peck o’ trouble’ - Margaret Alice Murray

Set within the drawing rooms of this historic Grade 1 listed building, Suzanne O’Haire is pleased to present a new series of work titled beyond belief. Thirty-four acrobatically stacked, bundled or tentatively balanced compositions perform as supposed magical sigils or spells for this solo exhibition. These domestic-scale sculptural assemblages are created from discarded objects, castings (from disposed packaging) and elements of neon lighting.

The exhibition title comes from a remark made by Margaret Alice Murray, who discovered a small, silvered glass phial purported to contain a mischievous witch. Found around 1915, not far from the Regency Town House in Hove, this witch in a bottle - as it is more commonly termed - is now housed in Oxford’s Pitt Rivers Museum.
