Kensington Palace Secrets

I was commissioned to make a series of large laser-cut silhouettes featuring the secrets of former inhabitants of Kensington Palace. This was installed in the Sunken Garden during the inTRANSIT festival of Kensington and Chelsea. Visitors were invited to add their own secrets which were suspended in transparent red baubles along the walkways.

The genres of secrets I chose were … Secret Dreams (the young Queen Victoria), Secrets of the Trade (the palace ratcatcher), Secret Regrets (Queen Anne and the Duchess of Marlborough), Secret Places (Peter the Wild Boy), Love Secrets (Queen Mary II and King William III) and the Secret to Happiness (Princess Charlotte)
