full to bursting

Opening: Thursday 1 June 2023


1 June - 18 June 2023

5-8pm Thurs, Fri | 12-6pm Sat, Sun

Staffordshire St are excited to present the velour-clad group exhibition ‘Full To Bursting’ curated by Haydn Albrow and Flora Bradwell.

Encompassing sculpture, painting, sound and performance, this interdisciplinary show will bring together female and/or queer identifying artists to investigate the grotesque through the bodily, through language, and through an erotic lens. 


Carnavalesque in its' fantastical exaggeration of contemporary contexts, the show's high-octane pitch reflects the excess of ramped up emotionality of living in a time of permacrisis.


Participating artists:

Okiki Akinfe, Haydn Albrow, Kavitha Balasingham, Eleanor Bedlow, Flora Bradwell, Anna Choutova, Tom Coates, Sophie Goodchild, Bart Hajduk, Amber Khan, Sophie Lourdes Knight, Lindsey Jean McLean.
