The Mushroom Hunters

Saturday, November 10, 2018 · No Comments

Clare Celeste Börsch’s show The Mushroom Hunters is based on the poem by Neil Gaiman and is described by the artist as a “large-scale, floor to ceiling, immersive three-dimensional collage” which took six weeks to complete.

“The women, who did not need to run down prey, had brains that spotted landmarks and made paths between them left at the thorn bush and across the scree and look down in the bole of the half-fallen tree, because sometimes there are mushrooms. Before the flint club, or flint butcher’s tools, The first tool of all was a sling for the baby to keep our hands free and something to put the berries and the mushrooms in, the roots and the good leaves, the seeds and the crawlers.” – Neil Gaiman, excerpt from The Mushroom Hunters
