Stella Haycock
mouth open, mouth closed

10 - 25 May 2024

Exhibition: 10 – 25 May 2024
Opening event: Friday 17th May 2024, 6.30pm – 8pm | Artist Talk: 5.30pm – 6.30pm

Stella Haycock’s contemporary approach to traditional printmaking is undeniably renegade. In their latest body of work, mouth open, mouth closed, Haycock continues a profound exploration of alphabetic letterforms through an experimental screen-printing practice, inviting viewers into a realm where fluidity meets form, and tradition intersects with innovation.

In mouth open, mouth closed, Haycock has been encouraged to experiment, leveraging the site-specific installation access and embracing new video processes to inform their approach, documenting intimate core movements and repetitive writing actions to spark their inquiry.

The exhibition unfolds as a sensory experience across print and digital mediums.  Delicate strokes of black ink cascade across walls, floors, and paper surfaces, transforming the gallery space into a captivating installation that beckons viewers to explore and engage with the artworks on a visceral level.
