Bra Spangled Banner

Jamie McCartney

26 September–29 October

Mon–Sat 10:00–22:00
Sun 12:00–16:00

Jamie takes images of hundreds of people to build up these photographs. Like his famous sculpture, The Great Wall of Vagina, they are beautiful and deftly thought provoking. During the show he will be creating new bra flags with visitors volunteering as models. To participate contact the venue.

A flag is a symbol, as is the act of subverting it. People assign power to these symbolic objects, so by using them in his artworks Jamie recycles and refocuses that emotional power.
