Katie Watchorn:  BalehomeBalehome | Wednesday 6 June  – Sunday 2 September 2018 | VISUAL Centre for Contemporary Art

BalehomeBalehome presents a collection of new and pre-existing works by Katie Watchorn relating to farmyard and milking parlour systems, in particular the traditional herringbone milking parlour structure. Taking points of departure from her grandmother’s cattle index and from Kenneth Russel’s 1962 book ‘Build Your Own Farm Buildings’, Watchorn reinterprets the sunken levels of her father’s milking parlour – the milking pit and integrated foot bath. The entirety of this parlour was built using concrete shuttering in the 1980’s, reflecting the move towards mechanisation of traditional processing in farming at the time.
