familiar impurities

Llewellyn McGarry

14 May 2015 to 24 May 2015

Llewellyn McGarry's work addresses the artist's preoccupation with collections regarding her self, relationships and interpersonal contamination and how these combine to define identity. familiar impurities explores these ideas in regards to McGarry's own changing health. The collections represent one hundred days of contamination, through metaphorical snapshots of her daily life using self portraits, collected detritus of consumed medication and re-creation of this medication.
