Abigail Fallis British, b. 1968

Fallis’ work first captured the public imagination in the nineties with her commentary on the ‘Cool Britannia’ movement and a pair of framed hand stitched Union Jack Y fronts, entitled Cock-Eyed Jack. In 2009, a public sculpture by Fallis was installed in Central Square, Newcastle, entitled DNA DL90. Standing at a monumental 9-metres high this double helix of shopping trolleys commented on contemporary consumer culture and the implications of scientific discovery.
