DNA double-helix inspires Abigail Fallis

The DNA double-helix is the inspiration for a sculptural work by Brit-Pop artist Abigail Fallis that went on show last week. Created from shopping trolleys, the work is in support of the Muscular Dystrophy Campaign. A first inception, at nearly 5m high, is likely to tour museums next year, while a second, for Sculpture at Goodwood, in West Sussex, will be double the size. Hollis says she used trolleys as a symbol of consumer culture in modern society. ‘[I have always] been fascinated with ladder structures like DNA and have been incorporating them into my work for the last few years,’ she adds. Somerfield and Kwik Save are backing the campaign.
