OUR RED AUNT

Glasgow Women’s Library

Friday 2nd February to Saturday 17th March

A collection of new works responding to the work and life of Fiona’s Great Grand Aunt, prominent Scottish activist and suffragette Helen Crawfurd (née Jack). Along with friends and collaborators Fiona has made a series of books, banners, sculptures and ceramics that respond to Helen Crawfurd’s legacy and the relevance of her critical perspectives today.
