Judy Darragh repurposes familiar everyday materials with humour and irony, creating new objects alive with possibility. She often uses discarded items, but this gravity-defying work was made from something new and mass produced – a cheap, synthetic Persian-style rug. Poised at the point of take-off, it’s a cut-rate magic carpet that both applauds and lampoons the potential of ‘great’ art to transport us into unknown realms.
