Jacky Redgate is known for the systems and logic that inform her sculptural and photographic works. Hold On reflects on how she has recalled the autobiographical images and subjects of her juvenilia, while continuing to make conceptually based photographs over the past decade. What could initially be interpreted as formal compositions with neutral subjects becomes ‘contaminated’ by dolls and teddy bears from Redgate’s childhood.

Blurring the lines between truth and untruths, Redgate’s works embody a cathexis on emotionally laden subjects.

This exhibition is part of PHOTO 2021’s expanded program.
