Hand-coloured portrait of a Valkyrie, immobilised in marble and impaled by her own arrow. Often thought of as the daughters of noblemen, Valkyries are female warriors in Norse mythology; they are often featured with ravens. Posed here, the artist subverts the strength of character into being inherently fragile.
Taken from The Sialia Marbles, a series of portraits containing ephemeral human sculptures taken between 2016-19. Together these works act as tales contained in a fictional sculpture hall, in direct reaction to Andre Malraux’s 1947 Le Musee Imaginaire (Museum Without Walls).
