Taking over both gallery spaces at The Whitaker in Rawtenstall, Lancashire, for she is always creeping is an adaptation of Aideen Barry’s By Slight Ligaments and has been specially re-imagined for The Whitaker.
Aideen Barry is an Irish visual artist whose work has been widely exhibited in solo and group exhibitions and commissions internationally. She works primarily with video, animation, installation and performance, and her work grapples with issues of domestic labour – and we are delighted to welcome her and for she is always creeping to The Whitaker.
for she is always creeping includes film, sound, drawing and digital animation. Sound and imagery will overwhelm visitors, playing with the senses, marking out connection, dislocation, and our bodies in a changing world.
The title of the exhibition comes from Charlotte Perkins Gilman’s gothic feminist novella The Yellow Wallpaper, which explores misogynistic and claustrophobic attitudes towards the mental and physical health of women.
