Kelly McDonald, Turn it Baby, 2023

Kelly McDonald – A curious story told in several parts (Chapter 3)

Kelly McDonald’s work is a playful investigation of materials and their previous lives, and how they might rub against humans, both lovingly and in scratchy ways. There’s something of a biography to it, equal parts fiction, truth and absurdity, with a few scraps of desire thrown in for good measure.

Exhibition: Friday 6 October – Saturday 4 November, Wednesdays – Saturdays, 11am – 6pm. See website for more details.
