Broached Colonial Prickly Lamp

$30,000per item

About

For Prickly Lamp Lucy McRae applies the adaptive reuse capabilities that have made her work as a ‘body architect’ famous, to create a light. The work adds a protective skin to a floor light, transforming it into a new creature capable of intense labour and self-preservation – two qualities essential for women wanting to survive the harsh conditions common during the Australian colonial period.
