AISLING HEDGECOCK
Part accelerated speleothem, part architectonic folly, 'The Ninth Stellation' is a large
polychrome sculpture by Aisling Hedgecock made specifically for On Becoming A Gallery.
Constructed from an apparently infinite number of polystyrene beads and found Spanish
religious ephemera, cut and folded into stellated icosahedrons, Hedgecock employs both
meticulous craft and process-led action to transform prosaic materials into pareidolic
semblances of biogeological growth.
