That very Victorian piece of underwear, the corset, is unlaced in all its glory by textile designer Caroline Broadhead. It’s hardly a piece of liberating lingerie, as the corset triggers images of maidens fainting from tight-lacing. But Broadhead’s design is based on imagery drawn from a corset factory in Banbury (with an undercurrent of buildings wrapped in ghostly material by Christo), and aims to explore the effects of light and shade in textiles, a metaphor for the light and dark sides of the personality. Under Construction: Exploring Process in Contemporary Textiles can been seen at the Crafts Council Gallery from 11 July to 4 August.
