Day Trips to Utopia and other strange worlds

Victoria Scholes has made a number of art works exploring the power of small and enclosed spaces to represent wider worlds and different realities.

In ‘Ice Cream in Utopia’, she makes elegant shallow glass boxes emblazoned with strange people and places. The work is all about Utopias: how they are patched together pictures of what we want and what we have; how they are possible and yet not possible – and how strange they look when taken to their bizarre conclusions.
