Teresa Grimaldi : Magic encyclopedia

Teresa Grimaldi

Magic encyclopedia

When I was two I won a set of Childrens encyclopedias in and Ovaltinees balloon race. My balloon went to Gibralter. I still have the set which is very precious to me and began a body of work in 2005 which related to images, smells and outdated information contained in the bright red books. The work to date has consisted of making a puppet version of myself as that two year old, an installation featuring the puppet and related objects and performance. The work has been exhibited at TEXT festival Exeter, Dartington College of Arts and the Surface Gallery, Nottingham
