Over the past year, Fiona has studied Helen’s unrelenting crusade against injustice and, with friends and collaborators, Fiona has made a series of books, banners, sculptures and ceramics that respond to Helen Crawfurd’s legacy and the relevance of her critical perspectives today.

Read a blog post from Laura Matheson on meeting Helen Crawfurd through her own words and be inspired to visit this timely exhibition.

This project has been supported by The Elam School of Fine Arts PBRF fund and Creative New Zealand. With thanks to Re-Connect Glasgow for their support.
