Nicola Jackson: The Bloggs

11 December – 13 January 2018

Opening Saturday 9 December, 2.30PM

Exhibition Talk: Sunday 10 December, 2.30PM


The Bloggs – a title that refers to the British colloquialism ‘Joe Bloggs’ to denote the typical everyday man – considers what it is that makes us human. Nicola Jackson has created her version of an anatomy museum, filling vitrines and cabinets with a range of curious objects and adorning the walls with paintings of inquisitive characters.

In The Bloggs Jackson has paired key anatomical elements with qualities that go beyond the physical but ultimately aid in classifying us as human.
