Construction of an Icon
Designer (Set & Costume)
Commissioned by the National Maritime Museum
Construction of an Icon is a performance and communities’ project which offers new ways to share histories of Elizabeth I, and disseminate the iconic Armada Portrait to new audiences. It was commissioned by the National Maritime Museum. In collaboration with Oliver Cronk we designed and realised a reconstruction of the Armada Portrait gown, reinterpreted in scuba and laser cut ruff and inhabited by performer Christopher Green as we transported The Armada Portrait beyond the gallery walls.
