Birds with Birds
20 November 2017 - 14 January 2017
Alexandra Gallagher’s series ‘Birds with Birds’ explores femininity and sexuality and it’s confinement in modern day society.
Drawing on symbolism from different cultures, Gallagher creates an unconventional narrative centred around female empowerment, creating something beautiful from an idea rooted in a darker place.
