Event description

Description

The extraordinary tale of the Lady of the Swamp; the real and imagined life of Margaret Clement is the latest exhibition by photo-artist Tamara Bailey.

The photographs feature dream-like scenes that depict a reoccurring theme of water, which had an all consuming effect on Margaret’s life, as she lived in a derelict mansion with her sister, surrounded by a foreboding swamp.

In a series of composite images, Tamara creates imagined scenes from a woman’s life from yesteryear, depicting the juxtaposition between the opulent life she once led; to the life of squalor that was her reality for so long, and to her eventual disappearance – presumed murder – in 1952 which remains unsolved.
