The Threshold, 2023 by Monster Chetwynd
Monster Chetwynd’s new limited-edition artwork, The Threshold, accompanies her ambitious commission at Gloucester Road Tube station, Pond Life: Albertopolis and the Lily; a sculptural intervention, designed to span the 80-metre disused platform, and a new film Who named the Lily?, which celebrates and laments the complicated history of the Crystal Palace.
The Threshold is inspired by Chetwynd’s childhood expeditions to the Natural History Museum, where she would look in awe at the glass cases of hundreds of jewel-coloured taxidermied hummingbirds.
It also references Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland, specifically when Alice begins crying, and then as she shrinks is deluged by a flood of her own tears.
Chetwynd’s hand collaged, multi-layered artwork reflects on altered states and thresholds – whether at the museum or beyond.
