Red screenprint on cloth tea towel.

Released in 2006. 

47.6 x 76 cm. 


This printed tea towel is a multiple designed and made for sale alongside his exhibition The Charms of Lincolnshire at the Victoria Miro Gallery, London in 2006 (first shown at The Collection, the new museum of art and archaeology in Lincolnshire). For this show Perry selected historic artefacts – everything from toys, costume and bibles to game-keepers’ traps, coffin plates and a wooden hearse, from various museums of rural life and social history in Lincolnshire. These were shown in conjunction with his own works – including dolls, vases, plates, and an embroidered sampler, all of which were designed to blend together in what was described as “a three-dimensional narrative poem” exploring death, childhood, religion, folk art, hunting and the feminine. Many of the objects in the exhibition are depicted in the image on the tea towel.
