Over four decades of her practice, Mary Kelly has addressed issues relating to the body, systems of classification and power, and memory. In the early 1970s, she began to bring art and politics together; her projects reference iconic representations from the historical past and have been informed by World War II in London, the Vietnam War protests, and the Women’s Liberation Movement.
