Save Event: Artist's Talk

People who have saved this event:


Lisa Creagh will discuss her practise, her personal motivations behind the work and the need for open discussions about breastfeeding in society.


Lisa Creagh’s new project, Holding Time, will be showing at ONCA Gallery for two weeks, with an installation of photographic still portraits, a single screen animation and video recorded interviews with participating mothers.

Creagh’s work sets out to remove the barriers to breastfeeding, whilst positively promoting this role in society by providing positive images of mother and child relationships, seeking to re-contextualise motherhood in general and breastfeeding in particular as an active, rather than passive activity.

A collaborative piece, Lisa has worked with breastfeeding mothers, sociologist Lucila Newell, glass maker Mike Barrett and composer Helen Anahita Wilson to create a work which transcends the walls of a gallery.

It will be a great opportunity to get to know her as an artist and to ask any questions you may have.
