1st – 31st August 2020 – Online Exhibition
Welcome to Consequences – an online exhibition of work created by women across Peterborough and beyond.
Over 5 months, including lock down, hundreds of women from across Peterborough and beyond have been meeting up to chat and get to know each other whilst drawing. We went beyond the usual chit chat and explored the personal, political and universal issues. It’s been about lock down, BLM, origins of our names, whether we make our own luck to whether we iron our hair and if we prefer dogs to cats. This exhibition showcases all of the drawings, words and conversations in one place and invites you to join in.

Consequences was developed by artist Kate Genever and Metal. It has been funded through the Integrated Communities Fund managed by Peterborough City Council with the support of Arts Council England.
Consequences on zoom, face to face or as postal worksheets has enabled discussion on topics ranging from the origin of our names, the identification of magnetic north using body hair, isolation, personal trauma, roles of women and of course Covid and BLM protests. Personal, political, universal debates… We have laughed, cried, longed for and sworn. In many ways we have grown in confidence, been vulnerable, made friends, tried new things. Drawing and its outcomes have accompanied us along the way, helping our conversations, often with strangers, flow. That doesn’t mean the drawing is an add on, rather it is a serious action, or line, helping us to walk with the knowledge that we might not know where we are going.
