About this Event

Collective is delighted to present If you get the knees right the rest should follow, a new exhibition by Glasgow-based artist Holly McLean.

If you get the knees right the rest should follow presents a slice-of-life of Alice Vandeleu-Boorer, an artist, market-gardener, mother and surfer. Holly and her camera follow Alice across different spaces in her life and we witness their intimacy, humour and raw, open, frankness.

This is the latest in Holly's series of film portraits focussing on fertility, reproduction and motherhood: aligning discoveries and discrepancies between science, nature and challenges to norms of representation. The developing suite of films – beginning with Saturnrania in 2019 - draw on aspects of science-fiction, anthropological film making, home movie-making and artist’s film and video.

Holly's collage practice uses a different visual and poetic form of storytelling to expand her ideas and uses a raw D.I.Y aesthetic to depict watery science-fiction galaxies that encapsulate birth, growth, miscarriage and child rearing in all their human and (and potential non-human) mess.

Tickets/Covid-19 Safety Measures
