MANDY LANE

I was a looked after child. My work is driven by my experience with the world. Complexities of the domestic and displaced. I have thought in depth about what it means to be a woman in poverty. My practice draws from my understanding of the family, family ritual and relationships within the lone family unit, the mother, mam, mammy and child. My work attempts to understand the bonds and restrictions of single motherhood and parentlessness. I explore narratives through objects and form, using materials that balance the dialogue between the work and the viewer.


“Although there is much evidence that things are changing and that gender is becoming more fluid

and equality is evident,

many institutional prejudices and barriers to equality also remain as strong as ever”
