Daisy Collingridge’s deliciously fleshy textile characters will gather in TJ Boulting’s exhibition in Borough next week, their exaggerated limbs and bellies stretching out across the gallery’s walls in flat, frieze-like formations – a new departure for the artist, whose sculptures usually stand alone.

Her first solo show Splanchnic (pronounced ‘splank-nik’) takes its name from the anatomical word relating to the internal organs of the abdomen. Collingridge is fascinated by the inner workings of the body that we know little about. She exposes them in her tactile sculptures, made from hand-dyed jersey fabric, which she quilts together.

In the second room of the gallery, she will recreate a character from her recent ‘wearable sculptures’ named Burt. Visitors will be able to crawl inside his giant head, usually worn by the artist herself, and see its innards up close. The effect will be cocooning and unsettling in equal measure.
