Sculptor Saunders is known for transforming reclaimed sofas and chairs into weird and wonderful living creatures: some seem to melt across the room amoeba-like; others resemble insects or aliens. The installations also form the basis of her printed work, where the addition of scrawled slogans adds witty discomfort. Saunders work is part of the collections of the Hayward Gallery, the Saatchi Gallery and the V&A.

Saunders’ work “Peas” Are Good For You was exhibited in the Danish pavilion at the 2009 Venice Biennale. A single pea sealed in a transparent sachet, it was inspired by the Hans Christian Anderson fairytale, the Princess & The Pea.
