Armida’s vexation

Charlotte Squire creates a sense of wonder and anxiety with her sculptural forms. Her work uses illumination to draw attention to the transformation of mundane materials into something that both engages and unsettles.

This installation was created specially for Dreaming Awake as part of the Dulwich Festival.

Armedia is betrayed by her mortal lover, and uses her powers as a sorceress to keep him prisoner in an enchanted garden.
In Tassos epic poem he is rescued by 2 soldiers but comes back to find Armida in her distress. She loses her power and becomes mortal to stay with him.
