For this year’s Leicester Society of Artists* exhibition, I chose to show my tiny but powerful Protest Pincushion. Since this piece was made, the Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill has been passed by Parliament, putting an end to many of our protest rights and has criminalised stepping on land owned by someone else.
By including this protest piece in a generally traditional exhibition, I hope that different people will see it than otherwise might do on my website, and lead them into new ways of thinking about this issue. The exhibition is at Newarke Houses Museum in Leicester until 31st October.
