Kate MacGarry presents a solo exhibition of works by Rose Finn-Kelcey (1945-2014). The exhibition will focus on key pieces from the 70’s to the 90’s, exploring a breadth of work central to Finn-Kelcey’s practice. She first came to prominence in the early 1970s as an artist central to the emerging communities of performance and Feminist art in the UK. The nature of Finn-Kelcey’s work is richly diverse, both in form and subject matter, however it is consistently conceptual and “characterised by a dry wit that belies the formidable intelligence and deep humanity that drove her practice”. She deftly offers humour as a point of access into her work, allowing a wide and varied audience to consider topics as varied as life, death and spirituality communicated with great depth and profundity.
