Jenni Dutton based in Somerset is a graduate of St Martin’s whose current work has evolved from a series of conceptual dress sculptures that began in the late 90’s. This extends the concept of body wrappings in a series of sculptures using shop mannequins – either actual figure display models or plaster casts taken from them. These torsos are covered with smashed up bits of china and objects trouvés – plates, cups, figurines – that give each work its distinct personality and narrative. While there are considerable whimsy and charm at work here, each torso is perfectly well resolved in concept and design.
