“The child who is not embraced by the village will burn it down to feel its warmth.” – Nigerian proverb

An exhibition on the theme of The Abandoned Child Archetype. Nineteen characters navigating their way over rocky ground. A story waiting to be told. All these children have something in common. They have been thrown or have fallen from the nest and are left to find their own way without guidance.

Mhairi Corr has been creating and exhibiting throughout the UK since graduating from Glasgow School of Art in 1982. Her unique paper pulp figures arrive each with their own presence and individual back story.
