(MAY)HEM, 2018

In 2018, I collaborated with my 2nd year BA Fine Art year group to organise, curate and submit work to an exhibition at the Bureau Centre for the Arts, Blackburn.

The exhibition was titled 'The Great Austerity Debate'. In response to this theme I devised and submitted a piece of work titled (MAY)HEM. The work subverted the confusion of mass media through screen printing and mass production of a direct message and play on the name of the (at the time) Prime Minister of the United Kingdom and leader of the Conservative Party, Theresa May. 

This transformative work was first presented during the opening of the Great Austerity Debate exhibition through a performance in which I mass produced the work which was scattered among the gallery floor. 

Within the following two weeks in which the gallery was opened, the work continued to mass-produce through two open community workshops, one in Blackburn town centre and another at the 2018 UCAS exhibition in Manchester.

On the 12th December 2018, the work was pasted up throughout the streets of Blackburn as a response to the vote of no confidence bid against Theresa May.
