The Threshold, 2023

Monster Chetwynd

Digital pigment print, with metallic graphite silkscreen and collage, on Somerset Velvet 330gsm
Size: 38.3 x 30.5 cm
Edition of 55, signed and numbered

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 shrinks and 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.
