Pippy Houldsworth Gallery is delighted to present a selection of early work from the 1970s by renowned artist Mary Kelly, running from 15 April to 28 May 2016.

About

The exhibition includes unseen prototypes, original material, photographs and experimental film directly related to the production of Kelly’s iconic Post-Partum Document (1973-79), now considered one of the most important feminist works of art to have been produced in the twentieth century. 

Comprising 135 objects in six sections,Post-Partum Document (1973-79) interrogates the social and psychological processes that shape the mother-child relationship. When first exhibited in London in her solo exhibition at the ICA in 1976, the work provoked tabloid outrage for incorporating a series of stained nappy liners. An original study for Post-Partum Document: Documentation I, Analysed Faecal Stains and Feeding Charts (1974), comprising a small group of the infamous nappies, is on show for the first time
