Unfashioned Creatures

Keith Bloody Mary

‘We are unfashioned creatures, but half made up’ - Mary Shelley, Frankenstein

What will happen after humans are extinct and robots are no longer functioning? What on earth will evolve? Keith Bloody Mary imagines a world where nature claims back the planet, and hybrid creatures grow from the things our species leaves behind. Keith Bloody Mary uses photo-collage to create humorous and often ridiculous pieces of work. Using only images from found magazines and cut and paste techniques, Keith Bloody Mary pieces together new life forms, like a 21st Century Dr Frankenstein.

This exhibition is the culmination of Keith Bloody Mary’s month long residency at Wigan STEAM. During this time, Keith worked on the collages presented here alongside delivering workshops with members of the community - during which participants made work to be featured in a collaborative zine.
