Between Folds/ Theatre Posters sets together Francisca’s collection of posters from the Theatre Royal (Brighton + Nottingham) from 1929 to 1958. With minimal lettering and fragments of large type, Francisca looks to captive the attention of the viewer in the same way that a poster does. The angular and abstract aesthetic of Russian Constructivist graphics were the inspiration for this artwork. This new reinterpretation of a poster is related to her ‘Antiposter’ artwork, which she created some years ago.
