😑 + 🥰 by Fred Ashleigh Thornton
Friday 20th August – Sunday 12th September 2021
Fred makes cluttered, confrontational artworks using paint and felt-tip pens from Poundland. Their practice stems from their lived experience as a fat, feminist, queer trauma survivor. The work is often humorous and relatable, littered with popular culture references, the language of social media and the artist’s own stream of consciousness.
For this solo show, Fred will be exhibiting a new body of work made from cardboard and inspired by theatrical set design.
Join us at 6pm on Friday 20th August for the launch event at the Hidden Wardrobe on Old Northam Road. If you are unable to attend don’t worry, we will also be launching the exhibition online on our YouTube channel.
