Pellegrino, presents plasticine works, wallpaper murals and a sculpture all conceived during a seven week residency at Villa Elia in the south of Italy, Puglia. Pellegrino, which translates as ‘pilgrim’ in Italian, is titled as such as a result of Hudson’s journey from London to the villa. It was an excursion in the same vein as the painting retreats of early 20th Century artists who sought out the brighter, southern sunlight. The exhibition, however, takes the concept of pilgrimage to the modern day, exploring our almost religious attraction to contemporary icons and idols.
