Nightingales Nest.
Multi-sensory site specific installation by artist Chantal Powell commissioned for "Victoriana: The Art of Revival" at The Guildhall Art Gallery, London in 2013

Installation details: Casting plaster, pillows, bed linen, doilies, wood, paint, lighting, Spanish Jasmine scent. Dimensions variable.

“The sculptor Chantal Powell . . . directly assaults the sentimentality of the Victorian view of home and hearth with a disturbing installation, Nightingale's Nest, in which models of sleeping babes lie on white pillow cases in a Jasmine-scented atmosphere of stifling purity.”
(The Independent 2013)
