Many people have turned to pets to offer emotional support and pet ownership has soared in Britain during coronavirus. Quarantine conditions can have several negative psychological effects, including post-traumatic stress symptoms. Play allows us to externalize our stories, where it can then be better understood and reworked therapeutically.
The Bristol Boo Purr pod is designed to be playful, for people to interact with the sculptures, something which is often off limits in the traditional gallery space or museum setting. This playful giant cat invites participation, it lights up and purr when interacted with.
US based artist Paige is based is as you can imagine a huge fan of cats and play!
Location: Ashton Court Courtyard
