Group Exhibition at Chelsea

Images from a mid-term exhibit at Chelsea College of Art and Design. It led to a chain of discoveries about this my featured piece Been Around the Block. At first, I thought this would be an effective way of showing how negative and positive patterns and ideas were learnt during childhood. But I pushed that meaning onto the work and the disconnect between theory and form was obvious. I asked classmates to paint the unfinished blocks with make-up I had bought. It was all wrong. Later, I made it right.

Kyla Harris’s recent body of work stems from numerous NHS appointments and her experience of restricted mobility. Her installations and sculptures are of surrealistic domestic objects made from primarily used or expired medical supplies. Notions of dis/comfort, sustainability and the home are left as remnants of subverted interiors for the viewer to experience. Because of Harris's disability, much of her sculpture is collaborative. She has carers or personal assistants that construct and assist in the making of her work.
