Alison Pebworth's work is equal parts social practice, public performance, and fine art exhibition, and harkens back to a time of traveling performers and sideshow curiosities. We are thrilled to have her exquisite drawings and components from her recent work as a Recology Artist in Residence. Her intricate cabinets of curiostiy are created using found objects inbued with memory, mystery and surprise.
