cut-out photographs of butterflies, which the artist shot at the natural history museum when she first moved to london, float at the pace of a re-mix of words and sounds sampled from the queen’s christmas speeches broadcast in the ten years since. the work condenses the density and intensity of events that characterised the last decade in a baroque and tragicomic narrative, equally a memory of the past and a message from the future.
