Dewsbury Park museum (crow nest park exhibition. 'Don't do it Mother!')

The work for the museum was loosely based on Eileen Fenton Dewsbury's own channel swimmer.
I took the fun and colour found in Bamforths postcards and added another comical slant onto the quintessential British seaside holiday and the comical things that might occur when there is a lot of goose fat involved , or in this case , a fat goose.
I wanted people who came to the museum to be able to dress up and play with my work, hence the masks, visitors can dress as the channel swimmer within my work (aka me ) and just have fun.
