This year, new work by the English artist Rachel Kneebone will be exhibited at Glyndebourne Festival. The London-based artist has created three new sculptures inspired by two of the operas being staged at the Festival this summer – Cavalli’s Hipermestra and a new opera based on Hamlet by composer Brett Dean and librettist Matthew Jocelyn.
Rachel Kneebone’s intricate porcelain sculptures address and question the human condition: taking themes of renewal, transformation, the life cycle and the experience of inhabiting the body.
