‘Despite Numerous Attempts to Contact You’ explores the relationship between personal finance and mental health.

Jill Kennedy-McNeill works predominantly with textiles, text and memes and produces site specific installations and soft sculpture, among other things. Three months of earning no money inspired this body of work. The gallery space represents a domestic environment with furniture that confines and restricts, echoing the debilitating lethargy that comes with depression and anxiety. Textile designs feature letters from debt collection agencies about loan defaults that occurred during this period, as well as excerpts from personal communications with family and friends.
Jill Kennedy-McNeill is a multidisciplinary Artist and Educator. Her work is often concerned with issues of inherited and constructed identity, particularly focusing on economics, housing and feminism. She draws on her own experiences as well as engaging in collaborative community projects to inform her practice. Using gallows humour, her work often attempts to make sense of life as a vulnerably housed, precariously employed womxn artist in one of the world’s most expensive and ruthlessly competitive cities.
Jill exhibits work across the UK, teaches, runs community workshops, and is currently undertaking research into the impact of arts-based outreach projects on disenfranchised and marginalised groups.
