The lascivious, floral and soft sculptures of Margarita Sampson at The Salon of Infectious Desires.
In the ‘Infectious Desires’ series by Margarita Sampson an imaginary literary salon is literally over-run by soft textile beings. Strangely beautiful creatures, that resemble marine flora, are crawling over the furniture. Mutant colonies of corals climb across the upholstery. An octopus´s garden of delirious beauteousness.
The altered chair sculptures of Margarita Sampson are currently on display at the Stanley Street gallery in Darlinghurst, New South Wales. The sculptural works are accompanied by a limited edition of giglee prints of the work in collaboration with photographer John McRae.
