This summer, Yorkshire Sculpture Park (YSP) presents Of House and Home by illustrator
Alice Pattullo. The artist’s most ambitious project to date includes 60 new screen-printed
editions revealing Pattullo’s fascination with traditions, superstitions and folklore.
Transporting you into a forgotten era, the exhibition takes visitors on a journey through
a Victorian household from garden to parlour, culminating with the heart of the home –
a recreation of a traditional fireplace and mantelpiece.
Informed by a love of historical research and the discovery of curious superstitions and rhymes surrounding the domestic every day, Pattullo’s new works introduce the modern day house dweller to parlour pastimes, homemade plant remedies, kitchen folklore and protective talismans.
