Acclaimed performance artist Bobby Baker exhibits a selection of her internationally-famous Diary Drawings at the University of Kent.
The 31 drawings, chosen from a larger national exhibition, will be on show in the Keynes College atrium exhibition space at the University’s Canterbury campus from 17 January - 3 March. Open during the week from 10am-5.30pm, the exhibition is free to all.
The drawings present a graphic account of Bobby Baker’s personal experience of mental illness and recovery. They were originally shown as part of a larger exhibition of 158 works, titled Mental illness and me 1997-2008, which premiered at the Wellcome Collection in 2009. The book of the same name won the Mind Book of the Year Award for 2011.
Bobby Baker said her aim in curating the exhibition with her daughter, clinical psychologist Dr Dora Whittuck, was to show that ‘it’s possible to build a life worth living even in the midst of personal crisis’.
