Michaela Yearwood-Dan - Let Me Hold You

Tue-Sun: 10-6pm

Michaela Yearwood-Dan’s work refuses the binary expectations of racial or gendered notions of collective identity and history. Resisting the clichés and strictures of representation, Yearwood-Dan presents their true self - their desires, their needs, their pain and their love - and empowers us as the viewer to do so too; to prioritise self and collective actualisation.

Michaela Yearwood-Dan’s “Let Me Hold You” sets the tone for our new home as we move forward - a safe space for the LGBTQ+ community.

Utilising flora and fauna motifs, Yearwood-Dan refutes the concept that LGBTQ+ people are “unnatural”. Instead she visualises the interconnectedness of the human and non-human experience, all the while expanding our understanding of what it means to be queer and to love.
