We are pleased to present Sara MacKillop’s first UK institutional solo exhibition since 2010.
One Room Living takes as its starting point the spaces within Nottingham Trent University that cater for leisure and recreational activity. By appropriating the motifs of art supplies, vending machines and spatial furnishing, MacKillop presents a series of works and interactions that reference the wide variety of spatial uses that directly surround Bonington Gallery – analysing not only the gallery’s site and situation, but also how the wider institution’s function is represented across a multitude of spaces.
Accompanying the exhibition is a display of MacKillop’s wide array of published and self-published printed matter, produced across a nine-year period, housed within the vitrine cases in the gallery foyer.
Sara MacKillop is an artist living and working in London. She studied at the Royal College of Art, London, from 1999 to 2001. Recent solo exhibitions include Window Display, Haus der Kunst Munich, 2016; Temporary Bond, Clages, Cologne, 2016; Sculpture Room, Trondheim Kunstmuseum, Trondheim, 2014; Post, Kunsthal Charlottenborg, Copenhagen, 2013.
