Flock

For their show at Allan’s Walk Artist Run Space, Coyle, Fennessy and Preston will present an ‘aviary’ of works encompassing print making, ceramics and textiles and inspired by the region’s natural environment and suburban bird life. Dollies, lap rugs and beer coasters are just some of the domestic items re-constructed by the artists in Flock.

The artists or ‘aves’ in Flock follow a long line of female artists throughout art history to blend collaborative working practices with media historically considered the domain of craft. Flock subverts the traditional museum/gallery system, and makes a comment on the feminine/feminist and art/craft divides.
