London-based artist Lucy Clout addresses debates around queer reproduction and parenting in an exhibition of new work.
Using sculpture, film and drawing Clout expands upon past work to tell anecdotal stories from queer people of DIY reproduction methods. Clout’s work adds to the discussion of non-heterosexual reproduction whilst also considering fantasies for the future.
