Fuschia Jubilee

Jennifer Mehigan

Free Limited Edition Prints |

Admission: Free

Fuschia Jubilee is a series of 100 bundles of limited edition prints by Jennifer Mehigan that maps images of hunger, body-building, and worship over uncanny ruins, follies, and meaningless memorials. The series of four prints is an anosmic recipe merging pre-Raphelite long-haired florals, flirting in the famine, with the smell of oil paint, petrichor and sex in a walled garden in West Cork in 1851.

The free prints are now booked out.

Prints will be posted on February 1st, the first day of Spring. Printed on double sided on A3 170gsm paper.
