Harriet McKay: Running Towards Home

April 15, 2021 - May 7, 2021

Harriet McKay, Hen, 2020. Pen, hand-dyed cotton and felt on raw calico, 118 x 93cm (unframed). Courtesy: the artist and Praxis Artspace, Bowden.

Running Towards Home is a meditation on the personal longing for place, community, and domesticity. Incited by a feeling of isolation as a result of bushfire smoke and covid-19 related travel bans, this exhibition reflects on McKay’s personal experiences of home – both as a conceptual framework and as a physical site of rejuvenation and material memory. Through a combination of pen, hand-dyed cotton and felt on raw calico, Running Towards Home explores the need for tangible connection – with place and people – to heal in times of great communal longing, exasperation, and loss.
