Poodle suits

I've been asked to submit a proposal for a scheme called Museumakers which enables 'makers' to partner museums and create a project based upon their collection. I'm applying to Orleans Gallery, in partnership with a director, to jointly create a performance and installation that will also incorporate the River Thames, Strawberry Hill and Ham House. I found this photograph of a previous owner of Orleans House with her pet poodle. Apparently she used to spin its hair into cloth that was then cut into suits for her grandsons to wear.
