Opening Thursday 3 February 2022

3 February – 27 March 2022

Jacqueline Bradley makes sculpture, drawings and assemblages that investigate our physical and visceral relationships to the outdoors. Questioning the engrained belief that we can control the landscape within the backyard by applying social boundaries. In these sites, the cycle of eating and feeding and growing and rotting continues to unfold in our close proximity.  She explores these notions through a deep connection to material, from found plant matter and garden detritus to textiles, bronze and now glass. In these works, the outdoors becomes a manifestation, a collection of entangled systems and meticulous processes of which she is only a part.
