’Full Circle’ installation artwork by Beccy McCray for ONCA Gallery. Brighton (commissioned by ONCA)
Beccy McCray explores playful, socially engaged art and design using a diverse approach that includes intervention, installation, participation, print, paint or whatever media necessary to create imaginative acts of resistance and more human moments in the world. Seeking to break down boundaries between art, activism and every day life, Beccy ultimately aims to spread joy and inspire positive change at grassroots level, using creativity to raise awareness of environmental issues and the social ideals that go hand in hand with sustainable and happy lives.
Beccy’s work has been commissioned by organisations such as the Jerwood Gallery, Turner Contemporary, The Olympic Park Legacy Company, The Barbican, National Theatre, the ONCA Gallery for Arts and Ecology, Arts Council England, The De La Warr Pavilion, Home Live Art and a residency in Brazil’s largest favela. Her projects have been featured in publications such as The Guardian, It’s Nice That, Interview, Oh Comely, Grazia, AnOther, The Independent, and The Community Lovers Guide to Hackney.
We are delighted to be showing Beccy’s latest installation ‘Home’. Inspired by 6 The Green’s past and present, it is a celebration of the building’s previous elderly residents and a comment on the evolution of the space. It will be made up of psychedelic termite mounds which explore notions of memory and what we mean by ‘home’.
