Susan Cianciolo presents an installation, God Life: Modern House on Land Outside Gate that draws viewers into her unique creative world. It draws together elements inspired by craft, fashion and daily domestic life, from which Cianciolo intuitively combines all sorts of materials, using fabric off-cuts, buttons and glue, through to cardboard boxes, diary pages and her young daughter’s drawings. The resulting works with their seemingly casual and low-fi nature of construction is at odds with the precision with which they are composed.
Works in the show are selected from several different groups – Mannequins, Kits, Tapestries and Games that are clearly part of a single, overarching project. Cianciolo’s very particular sensibility is both intimate and generous, inspired by her daily life as an artist and mother, but equally by her deep spirituality.
