Whitespace Gallery, 76 East Crosscauseway, Edinburgh, EH8 9HQ
9 – 13 April 2022
Precarious Living (Edinburgh, 2022) is a solo exhibition of print, collage and sound art. It is an unfinished collection, a snapshot of reality as it is here and now, with unmade pieces left jostling impatiently in the wings. These are works made in alarming times about remembering what matters most: environments, communities, families, selves.
