The Tennis Ball – Mindy Goose

DOGS, WALKING, PHOTOGRAPHY


Mindy’s fine art practice looks at walking as art. Inspired by the Becher’s typologies, her collections of observations uncover the journeys she takes, the paths she frequently walks, and the flux in which nature exists. She is concerned with how our environments connect to us, and what that means for a person with a disability.
Walking with her dog, she began noticing the remnants of tennis balls left abandoned by dogs. The images reveal a dog’s toy, once loved and cherished, destroyed by play, and continue the story long after they have been replaced by a brand-new tennis ball.

On Saturday 6th October dogs and their keepers are invited to a dog-friendly viewing of the exhibition and to share their stories of favourite toys, with opportunities to be photographed by the artist.

Dog friendly night is by booking only, and there are limited spaces. Please see follow this link for more details.
