  • Information


"The Dog in the Sky" offers a view of the world that is skewed, vibrant and larger than life.

Here, words turn into tiger-moths or laughing birds, the Minotaur finds his Ariadne and Pinochio's sister cuts loose from her strings. "The Dog in the Sky" is drunk on life, on love, on air thick with peach light, but also shows the flipside where you can't trust the earth beneath your feet.

In her second collection, Helen Ivory takes you further into a world of illusions and transformations.

Here are voices lost inside mental illness, divided and diverting selves, as well as sinister figures who control their madness and make things happen.

She creates puppet shows in which larger-than-life forces pull the strings and write the scripts, drawing also from the darkly dramatic world of fairytale and myth.
