ORT Gallery, 500-504 Moseley Road, Birmingham
ESP member Karen Mc Lean has a forthcoming solo exhibition at Ort Gallery. Her work is concerned with the relentless impact of colonialism and post-colonialism – particularly in the Caribbean. For this exhibition, she has created new work that continues to look at economic displacement and the ways in which religion, mythology and superstition are used for protection. BLUE POWER explores the historical forces that contributed to the development of these hybrid religious/ superstitious practices that can be observed throughout the Caribbean.
