About the exhibition

Everything Is Still Floating is an exhibition of new work by artist Jill McKnight, developed over the course of a two-month residency at The Art House.

The show, which can be seen evolving in the gallery throughout July, presents a mix of sculpture, prints, works on paper, writing, and audio work. Each piece explores themes familiar to McKnight’s practice – feminism, the working-class experience, the connection between traditional industries and domestic life – whilst weaving the artist’s personal, familial and community stories through the exhibition.

About the artist

Jill McKnight (b.1990) is an artist based in Leeds and from Sunderland working across sculpture, writing, installation and drawing. Central to their practice is exploring their working-class, feminist and artistic lineages to tell stories that would otherwise be lost or overlooked. Sculpture-making in an increasingly digitised world is considered alongside other forms of production; from traditional manufacturing industries to domestic routines.
