Sally Hackett

Garlic Swans, 2020

Sally Hackett is an artist and educator living and working in Glasgow. Sally makes sculpture with a range of materials of widely different shelf lives and sell by dates from glazed ceramics to garlic husks and toilet rolls.
Spurred by intuitive making, Sally creates her work predominantly around emotion and mental states. Characters appear showing stories of social intricacies, heartbreak and human failure but with a playful aesthetic of bright colours and cartoon faces.
Sally’s interest in pedagogy often sees her working directly with community groups and children to create works collaboratively or facilitate others
in their act of creating. Recent exhibitions include ‘A Toilet is a Wishing Well’ Generator Projects (2020), ‘A Weakness for Raisins’ CCA, Glasgow (2018), ‘From Glasgow Women’s Library’ (2018) and ‘The Fountain of Youth’, Edinburgh Art Festival (2016)
