Ingrid Pollard uses different photographic processes alongside printmaking, artist books, installation, video and audio to shed new light on important subjects. Following a residency in 2019 this solo exhibition reveals her responses to the materials held in the Lesbian archive at Glasgow Women’s Library. The new works offer a vital challenge to the marginalisation and erasure of LGBTQ+ history and culture.

Ingrid Pollard is a multi-media artist, photographer, researcher and lecturer. Pollard has developed a social practice concerned with representation, history and landscape with reference to race, difference and the materiality of lens-based media. Recent works include a re-examination of the UK and international archives to decolonise ethnographic and state-sponsored imagery of the former colonised countries.
