Featuring Penny Slinger, this event starts with a look at 50% The Visible Woman, the renowned artist’s first book of collage produced during her time at Chelsea College of Art, to the present, with more recent series like My Body in a Box. As an essential part of her work, photography is used for self-analysis and as a tool to disrupt consensual reality. Joined by curator Laura Smith, this conversation will take us through early inspirations like surrealism to other shifts in the artist’s practice as Slinger continues to confound and challenge the status quo.
