Octopus Monday: Felicity Powell: Charmed Life at Wellcome

Felicity Powell has curated the Wellcome Collection’s Charmed Life: The Solace of Objects exhibition – a free show which takes Edwardian amateur folklorist Edward Lovett’s amulet collection and displays a selection alongside her own small-scale wax creations.

The amulets themselves are fascinating objects, but I really enjoyed Felicity’s works – particularly the tentacled head above. The wax has a beautiful translucent quality which means it’s well worth popping along and seeing the work in person if you can to get the full effect.
