Mhairi Macaulay

Artists

Mhairi Macaulay’s work is characterised by a fascination with ‘The Social’: the way individuals interact with each other. Without a fixed aesthetic, Macaulay plays with the preconceptions we have about different communities, from grassroots groups to large corporations. Elements that tie the work together are a sense of shared ownership and the practice of ritual.

In 2012, Peckham Platform (then Peckham Space), helped Macaulay, at the time a student at Camberwell College of Art, to start a collaborative artwork based on the Peckham Peace Wall. Macaulay’s Peckham Peace Blanket is a patchwork blanket made by the artist and visitors to the Peckham Space Gallery throughout August 2012. It was then exhibited at Peckham Library and the following year was part of the V&A Lates: Peckham Takeover event in July 2013.
