Can You Spot Me Real Quick? — Connor Shields

A new exhibition of work by MA Fine Art student Connor Shields opens at Assembly House, Leeds this week.

Connor Shields’ practice is an enquiry into nature of maleness through the use of dichotomous materials such as steel, knitted wool and fabrics.

The work is reflective on and influenced by traditionally 'hyper-masculine' spaces that can often be hostile environments for queer people.

‘Can You Spot Me Real Quick?’ brings together a selection of new sculptural and two dimensional works, which cruise these spaces. The title alluding to casual gestures of protection and notions of being ‘seen’.
